A simply excellent primitivo. Notes of dried fruits, leather and cedar are rolled into this rustic package. There is a warming quality that is often found in primitivos/zinfandels with high alcohol. A real pleasure.
Here's an earthy, dusty, leathery, slightly bretty, sharply acidic, and deeply rustic Primitivo. But time pulls out baked dark berries and plums, dried dark fruit (including concentrated raisin), brown and pepper spice, vanilla marshmallow, and fresh raspberry, with notable heat. This is all about savoury rusticity, at least initially and as the frame, but the tangy fruit brightens things up through to a bitter herb finish, with whisky-note sweetness adding a pleasantly soft, smooth complement. Great value, impressive complexity and, overall, undeniable elegance within that rustic frame.
