Dashe Carignane Old Vines Evangelho "LET" Label

Dashe Carignane Old Vines Evangelho "LET"

Wine Information
 

We are incredibly excited to release our first ever bottling of Carignane from the 125 year-old Evangelho Vineyard in Contra Costa County. Though Carignane is typically blended with our Zinfandel, Mike Dashe saw (and tasted) something special in these vines and decided to bottle it on its own. With flavors bursting of cassis, spice, and minerals, we are overjoyed to welcome the 2015 Carignane to the Wild Child family!
