Color: Red
Country/State: California
94 Vinous, Antonio Galloni (5/2019) "Another highlight of this range, the 2017 Evangelho Heritage Wine is a stunner. Fresh, vibrant and nuanced, it conveys a compelling sense of translucence, and retains elegance and finesse even with its distinctly super-ripe, racy feel. This is the first vintage in which Bedrock had complete control of farming during the entire year, and it shows in the positively brilliant 2017. Sadly, Bedrock lost 30% of the Carignan in 2017, so the blend is a bit different than in the past."
92 Wine Advocate (2/6/2020) "The 2017 Evangelho Vineyard Heritage Wine comes from a dry-farmed vineyard planted in Delhi sandy soils in the 1890s to own-rooted Zinfandel, Mataro, Carignan and a few other scattered varieties. This is usually a blend of about 40% to 45% Zinfandel and 20% to 25% Mataro, with the remainder Carignan. "A lot of vines are getting ripped out because of BART construction," explains winemaker Morgan Twain-Peterson. "As BART moves further east, people are being offered a lot of money to relocate so construction can continue." Medium ruby-purple, the Heritage opens with notes of saline, nectarine, rooibos tea and dried flowers with a core of wild berries and a crushed-stone hint. Medium-bodied, it offers intense, perfumed fruits with a sturdy frame of grainy tannins and bold freshness, finishing long and perfumed."
94 Wine Spectator (4/30/2019) "Distinctive, showing briary complexity, with deep and expressive smoky anise, black cherry, black olive and green peppercorn flavors that build toward refined tannins. Zinfandel, Carignane and Mataro. Drink now through 2026. 600 cases made."
92 Our Score (10/2018) "The Bedrock team now owns a large portion of this famed vineyard. Blending several old vines together to make this site-based red. It's about the place, which Bedrock describes..."Own-rooted on forty-foot-deep banks of beach sand alongside the Sacramento River Delta, Evangelho is a totally unique site. Planted in the 1890s, the vineyard is a viticultural survivor-wedged between a PG&E plant, a Burger King, and a motel that rents rooms by the hour. A field-blend of Zinfandel, Carignane, Mourvedre, and others, the wines are fresh, bright, and typically have some of the lowest pHs of any of the Bedrock wines." Special juice."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
