Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Proprietary Red Evangelho Heritage, coming from the sandy soils of Contra Costa, is a field blend of Zinfandel, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Palomino, Alicante Bouschet and Mission. This is a relatively elegant wine, with an almost Pinot Noir-like finesse and complexity. Somewhat bistro-styled in its easygoing, midweight personality, it shows bright acids, loads of cranberry, black cherry and mulberry fruit, peppery spice and a nice, lovely finish. (RP)
