hmm...not bad...

maybe the most cali style primitivo i've tried. It's also the first time i've seen "zinfandel" on an italian wine. Obviously made for a north american crowd (and since "Ontario" is on the label probably an lcbo exclusive.)

lightly floral nose, medium bodied, moderately tannic but also quite soft and fruity. Not much acidity which makes it seem perhaps a bit too soft. drink now.

reminds me of the gnarly head zin i tried the other week.
