Release Letter:

I cannot tell you how many times we have flirted with making an Evangelho Carignan. We have long seen the tremendous wines made from the variety by Neyers, Desire Lines, Cruse, Calder and others and have taken great pride in them. Also, it is our ranch and we have access to the best sections for the variety, but we have always found it to be too important a component in the Heritage Wine or blended elsewhere to let it shine on its own. No more. This wine comes predominately from Block 14, which sits atop the knoll in the very center of the vineyard and always has some of the most balanced and delicious fruit on the ranch. It is also one of the blocks that has a good amount of interplanted Mataro in it, which is included in the fermentation, which helps push more exotic perfume. Fermented with 40% whole-cluster to add brightness and spice this was aged in neutral, predominately large format barrels. Dark but bright, this is a really fun expression of the deep-sanded Evangelho terroir.
