VINTAGE

Our Primitivo is produced in small quantities and offered on a limited basis. In 2017, the crop was normal tonnage but for some reason the grapes stalled during ripening and delayed our pick date. The grapes benefitted by developing a full flavor profile and elegant structure.

VINEYARD

This single acre vineyard lies atop a river canyon enjoying constant breezes and full sun exposure.  Planted on a medium slope of decomposed granite soil, the vineyard is tended similarly to our heritage Zinfandel vines,
head-pruned, dry-farmed, and aggressively thinned. This traditional vineyard practice keeps yields low and intensifies fruit characteristics. The Primitivo vineyard is also one of the organic vineyards on the property.

TASTE

Aromas of cherries and cola greet the nose. Flavors of black cherries, hints of cinnamon, and mild tannins fill the palate. Mild oak and light acid produce a medium bodied wine that pairs especially well with roasted pork dishes.
