Alcohol By Volume


Blackberry and red plum nose with accents of fig, toast and vanilla. Dark fruit on the palate with supple tannins and balanced acid to round out the finish. JO (7/20)
This wine comes from a five acre parcel at Lytton West planted to primitivo, a zinfandel clone from the Puglia region of Italy. The vines set a light crop that hastened ripening and concentrated flavors. Carignane from an adjacent parcel was added to enhance acidity and balance the wine’s rich, dark fruit. Enjoyable now, this exemplary primitivo will continue to develop over the next five to six years.
