2017 PRIMITIVO
85% Primitivo, 15% Petite Sirah

2017 PRIMITIVO

The epitome of Paso Primitivo, a clone of the Croatian variety Crljenak, and twin sister to California’s more famous Zinfandel.

Wine critic, Jeb Dunnuck says, "The 2017 Primitivo is outstanding and offers a more medium-bodied, charming, rounded style. Classic notes of plums, sweet spice, incense, and a hint of chocolate all emerge from the glass, and it has fine tannins, great balance, and a solid finish. There are 150 cases and it should keep nicely for 7-8 years if you’re so inclined." 91 Points
