Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Winemaker's Notes

Ruby red color with rich violet reflections; opulent bouquet, reminiscent of ripe cherries and plums, integrated by pleasing nuances of chocolate and vanilla. Remarkable structure, softened by the roundness and silkiness characteristic of Primitivo; long, velvet finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A juicy, fruit-forward red, with crushed blackberry and floral character. Full and well-structured, with tight, fine tannins pushing through the fruit. Subtle and structured, even reserved. From old vines. Best after 2009. 1,200 cases made."

We found this to be a full, well-balanced "mouth-full", with lots of luscious berry fruit, smooth finish, full-bodied without being heavy. We had it with a vintage tenderloin BBQ steak, side of sautee of onions, summer squash, zucchini, garlic finished w/ cherry tomatos and fresh thyme. Not the *best* Primitivo we've had, but very, very close
