2013 Primitivo Redwood Valley

Redwood Valley

We sourced the grapes for this wine from Vittorio Vineyard located on the bench land on the east side of the Russian River. The Testa family has been farming this vineyard for four generations. It is CCOF organically certified and dry farmed. Primitivo is genetically the same as Zinfandel but this clonal selection tends to ripen a little earlier than the Zinfandel planted nearby. It has aromas of black berry pie, cherry cola, anise, vanilla, and nutmeg. This intense dark wine has flavors of ripe black cherries, plum, rosemary, tar and earthy notes. The fruit is focused by bright acidity yet it is round and full on the palate.
