The Evangelho Vineyard is one of the great old-vine Zinfandel vineyards left in California. Planted in 1890 (on its own roots), it also includes a field planting of Carignan, Mourvedre, Palomino, Muscat, Chasselas and probably some other unidentified varieties that are harvested and co-fermented for this cuvee. The result is an exuberant red wine, marked by intense dark fruit and concentration, but also extraordinary aromatic lift, beguiling complexity, and true drinkability. A uniquely Californian wine.

About Precedent

Nathan Kandler decided on Precedent as the name for his personal wine project in homage to  small parcels of old vines dotted around California, some of which are pre-phylloxera, planted on their own roots, some still managed by decedents of their original farmers. These viticultural treasures are giving rise to beguiling complex and elegantly drinkable wines.
