2018 PRIMITIVO
85% Primitivo, 15% Petite Sirah

2018 PRIMITIVO

Wine critic Jeb Dunnuck says, "Based on 85% Primitivo (Zinfandel) and 15% Petite Sirah, the 2018 Primitivo sports a dense purple color as well as notes of mulled plums, peppery incense, candied orange, and flowers. Full-bodied and powerful on the palate, it has terrific balance, loads of fruit and opulence, and a great finish. It's not lightweight and is close to 16% alcohol, but it’s a rocking Zinfandel with loads to love. It should keep for 7-8 years at a minimum." 94 Points

The Mike Tyson of the vintage, this bad boy packs a punch! Deep, dark, inky purple color match aromas of blackberry jam, black plum, roasted nuts, and candied orange wheels. Dense and unctuous with flavors of Grandma’s plum pies, juicy wild berries, leather, dried leaves, and loads of pepper. A long, luscious finish full of refined, sophisticated tannins and big fruit flavor will make the most avid Zin lover shiver with excitement!
