This wine comes with a twist and a story. An aspiring winemaker is woken up in the middle of the night when police, ATF, IRS and other agents (guns drawn) rush in with a search and arrest warrant for his roommate. Apparently the roommate had “stashed” large quantities of collector wines in his second bedroom. Our aspiring winemaker had no knowledge (and no charges were filed against him) of this rather large UnOrthodox collection of wine in his house. And when the time came that he was working on his first commercial wine, the word “Evidence” came to mind, and a new winery was born.
Evidence 2009 “UnOrthodox” Proprietary Red Blend
This “UnOrthodox” wine is an extracted, highly structured blend of Zinfandel, Sangiovese, Syrah, Tannat and Tempranillo all sourced from some sought-after vineyards. On the nose this “bad boy” shows of some coffee, licorice, black stone fruit with a touch of smokiness. The palate of this “certified organic” vineyard blended wine is bold, round and lush and gives you a real “big” mouth full of wine that will pair well a rich meal or can stand up on its own legs as well.
