Evangelho vineyard is a blend featuring mostly Zinfandel. This vineyard always seems to have a more "claret" or elegant style to it. That can be a disadvantage at a tasting or with a group of bigger wines. When consumed on its own, however, it can be charming. Deep ruby in color. The nose has cherries, raspberries, slight smoke and an interesting bit of mint. On the palate, the cherries and smoke tend to dominate at the moment. Some depth. Good acidity. Nice finish. This drinks well on its own but really begs for pasta, pizza or burgers. Drink it over the next five years.
