Winemaker's Notes

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon / Primitivo is an intense ruby red color with aromas of spice, blackcurrant and plum on the nose. The mouth-filling palate has a fresh acidity, sweet flavors of cherries and lingering notes of brown spice. Full-bodied with supple, round tannins, the wine finishes long.

The fruit for this wine was sourced from valley and hillside vineyards on the Salento peninsula located in Puglia of southern Italy. The red soils of Salento, consisting of a calcareous base overlain by topsoils rich in iron, create an ideal viticultural environment. The Adriatic and the Ionian seas that border the peninsula bring a welcome cooling influence at night, tempering the hot summer heat. Primitivo, a native Italian varietal is the same as Californian Zinfandel. It is still grown on low, individual, bush-like training systems that create robust, fruity and strongly spicy red wines.
