From vines planted in 1880 at the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers in San Francisco Bay's Carquinez Strait. The vines are a mix of mainly Mourvedre and Carignan, and the rest Zinfandel, Palomino, Alicante, and Mission. The vines have thrived ungrafted, growing in their own roots, and dry-farmed (not irrigated). In the hands of the brilliant Morgan Twain Peterson of Bedrock, these 132 year-old vines produce a wine that is deeply flavored and expressive.

"After falling in love with the fragrant and forward 2011 wine, and with the quirky and strangely alluring sands of Contra Costa County, we decided that Evangelho Vineyard deserved a place in the permanent stable of Bedrock Wine Co.. The 2012 is a worthy successor to the 2011. Composed of roughly 40% Carignane, 38% Mourvedre, with the remainder Zinfandel, Palomino, Alicante, and Mission, the wine is a great expression of the fresh fruits and zippy acid (natural pH here of 3.4!) found from the well-tended, own-rooted vines planted in the 1890s in Frankie's field'o'goodness. Raised in a combination of smaller French oak barrels and a 600 gallon foudre the wine possesses crunchy red fruits of the Carignane, the sappiness of fresh Zinfandel, and the feral and exotic spice and earth of the terrestrial Mourvedre. Drink 2014-2020" Morgan Twain Peterson, winemaker
