From what will surely go down historically as a classic vintage, the 2019 Mr. Evans displays true elegance, assisted by its 24% of supple Merlot and 11% Petit Verdot. The grapes from Mr. Evans are sourced from the alluvial and silt soils in the lower portion of the sloped vineyard, lending acidity and freshness. The signature Mr. Evans style is a relatively perfect coupling with the slow start and idyllic conditions of the 2019 growing season.
Originally established in 1999 by vintners Shirley and Charles Roy, the vineyard was planted with the help of Helen Turley. Present owners Stephany Maillery and Stephan Crétier spared no expense in expanding the footprint of the vines and reenlisting the acclaimed Philippe Melka as winemaker.
