2012 Bedrock "Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Wine" Contra Costa Red Blend

SKU #1141389 93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Opaque ruby. Floral aromas of black raspberry and cherry pit, with complicating spicecake and mineral nuances. Round and fleshy on entry, then more energetic in the mid-palate, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors with no rough edges. This seamless, sweet blend finishes with excellent vivacity and terrific length. (ST)  (5/2014)

92 points Vinous

 Plum, black cherries, licorice, spices and tobacco flesh out in the 2012 Evangelho Vineyard Heritage, a Carignane-based, mixed-blacks red from a site in Contra Costa County planted in the 1890s. The flavor profile is very much on the dark side of things, but the wine's mid-weight personality balances some of the more overt elements. (AG)  (2/2014)

K&L Notes

Here's another of Morgan Peterson's idiosyncratic discoveries. Located in the Sacramento River Delta, it's an old field blend of goblet-trained Zinfandel and various other varieties.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
