2010 three Evangelho Zinfandel Contra Costa County
This Zinfandel is sourced from ancient vines in Contra Costa County which has been in the hands of the same family for three generations (over 70 years). In 1964 Frank Evangelho took over farming this vineyard from his dad Manuel. I consider Frank one of the most meticulous and passionate growers I know. The 2010 vintage Evangelho is a blend of 85% Zinfandel, 11% Petite Sirah, 1% Alicante Bouschet, 2% Carignane, and 1% Mataro.
