2019 Amador County Primitivo, Fourth Generation Exclusive
Primitivo, the Italian sibling of Zinfandel, translates roughly as "early one," which refers to its early ripening nature. Typically, these wines are quite robust with intense flavor and inky color. In true T-Vine fashion, we put a unique spin on the "typical" and produced a wine that highlights the special nuances of the Primitivo grape and uncovers veiled flavors.
With a nose of new leather, maraschino cherry, young plum, and red beet, pouring a glass feels like stepping into a time machine back to the Italian countryside. And that's just the beginning of this wine's intrigue.
Delight in delicious flavors of pomegranate, cranberry, and tart plum along the palate. Take time to let the wine linger as you'll be pleased with its pleasant acidity, medium tannin, and long finish.
