2017 And We All Grow Old, Red Wine, Contra Costa County, Evangelho Vineyard
72% Carignane and 28% Mataro sourced from the Evangelho Vineyard.
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 is speckled with 140-year-old, head-trained Carignane vines. These little bushes thrive here, creating supple, flavorful grapes year after year. Contra Costa County is also a premier growing region for Mataro (also known as Mourvèdre).
A stunning dark ruby red color in the glass, this wine exudes gorgeous aromas of cherry, licorice, spices, and dark florals along with tart black raspberry. Cherry, fresh currants, boysenberry, and black-plum-skin flavors meet with white pepper and lavender touches. The very expressive concentration of fruit mixes with bright flavors of medium acid and dusty tannins.
