2013 Evans Gypsy Cab
Matt Evans has been our winemaker since 2010. The Evans "Red Diamond" label allows Matt to explore beyond the traditions of the Elke Wines. Case in point: the 2013 "Gypsy Cab". These Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were sourced from a hillside vineyard in Lake County, a region becoming known for great Cabernets that punch well above their weight. But if this wine is a boxer, it's one that can dance. Nimble and nuanced, before you know it this Cab will lure you in with rich flavors of mountain berries, vanilla and wood spice, leading to silky tannins and a long finish. This is a cab that shows complexity without density, and power without weight. It's an adventure that may surprise you.
Please note: this wine is young and unfiltered, so it may develop sediment. We recommend decanting it for maximum enjoyment.
