SKU: RZPrimitivo

Originally planted in the early 90s on well drained bench land, this dry farmed, sustainably grown block is now producing some of the most flavorful high quality fruit on the entire estate. Primitivo is the Italian clone of Zinfandel, and delivers a wine leaning more in the direction of rich plum like flavors rather than blackberry.  A full bodied wine of great richness and depth with a ripe mouth filling viscous structure, yet possessing a smooth almost feminine silkiness that belies its bold character. Heady aromatics give way to a lush warm finish that make this wine the ideal complement to the most savory and hearty fare; braised short ribs, duck confit and beef tournedos.
