2015 Primitivo

Luscious and full, this estate grown Primitivo fill the glass with rich, fruity aromas. The fruit-forward aromas follow through on the palate, where they are accentuated with slight peppery notes. The roundness of the palate is held together with Primitivo’s characteristic acidity.

This is an exceptional wine, and not just because of the price point. It has a wonderful finish with the smooth, delicious taste of an expensive wine. I first tasted the 2009 this spring with the same impression. I give random bottles of wine to my daughter to try at home and she has always come back with Belle Glos Meiomi (Pinot Noir) as her favorite. This Primitivo has just replaced Meiomi as my daughter's favorite. BTW, Meiomi is the most popular wine on Delta airlines according to Andrea Robinson.

Yes, very smooth but the oaks build the body enough to balance the fruit. I think it made a great combination with the pouched salmon with dill. But I liked the wine so much I got some more to drink all by itself.
