2015 Evangelho Carignane
The Evangelho Vineyard is one of the most special vineyards on the planet, and there are few superlatives that truly pay it justice. Situated between a Burger King and a PG&E plant, acres of beachy sand are speckled with 140-year-old, head-trained Carignane vines. These little bushes thrive here, creating supple, flavorful grapes year after year.
It’s hard to imagine a more tempting wine than the Evangelho Vineyard Carignane. A stunning ruby red color in the glass, this wine exudes gorgeous aromas of cherry, licorice, spices and dark florals. Beaming cherry and fresh currants laced with eastern spices ramble on the palate while showing bright flavors of medium acid and dusty tannins. Savor the wonderful length on the finish.
