Precedent Evangelho Vineyard Zinfandel

The Evangelho Vineyard is one of the great old-vine Zinfandel vineyards left in California. Planted in 1890 (on its own roots), it is a field planting of Carignan, Mourvedre, Palomino, Muscat, Chasselas and probably some other varieties as of yet unidentified. The vineyard is at the westernmost viticultural edge of California's great Delta. Warm days, cool nights and wind define the climate. These sands are granite and quartz, literally blown from the Sierra Nevada over millennia. Altitude is 12 meters asl. Ancient vines planted on an ancient alluvial sand bar where the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers merge with the cooling waters and breezes of the San Francisco Bay. These gnarly vines are 120 years old and are old world head pruned, non- irrigated, and on their original root stock. Defying the perils of age and disease, the vines continue to offer their luscious fruit to succeeding generations of wine makers to transform them into bottled history. ‘Evangelho’ is supremely exotic with a heady perfume and old-vine intensity. The acidity is fresh, balancing the power and depth.
