With dark fruits, olives, herbs, balsamic and something Italian - this is a super find. Starts with a lovely fragrance, a hint of rose and brambles - not heavy but signs of depth. As it opens in the glass (or decant it) you begin to get dark fruits, nicoise black olives, herbs and balsamic. It develops and fleshes out becoming like a lovely Southern Rhone crossed with slightly Italian notes. This is a unique, truly fabulous wine. Jack Robert's mentor is Steve Matthiason, one of the big names in California who is encouraging a move a way from the big rich wines to more traditional styles.


Tasting Notes

The fruit from the Evangelho vineyard is some of the best, if not the best, in California. Here, the roots dig 40 feet deep through the Contra Costa sand to reach water, helping to produce ultra-flavourful, balanced fruit. The results can be mindblowingly good. We tasted it and knew we had to jump.
