2016 Primitivo - It’s a black cherry, blood orange, all-spice, hints of allspice and rose petal party in a bottle. Full, soft and plush across the palate. Lively acidity and fine tannins brighten the finish. Easy, pleasing, fun and priced to make a six-pack - this rich, drinkable cousin of Zinfandel is one of our most popular wines.
Luscious and full, this Primitivo fills 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.
