Profile


TASTING NOTES

Unique and expressive with a solid backbone and nice structure . This wine has density and force! Aromatics of rhubarb and red apple with intense flavors of firm black cherry, violet and graphite. Enjoy with Carbonara pasta or Chicken Cacciatore. If you can, age for 3-5 years or enjoy now with decanting.


VINEYARD NOTES

Our grapes are from one of the top growers in California, Ann Kramer in Sutter Creek. Primitivo is our
Italian expression of Cal-Ital Zinfandel and is known in Italy for its range of styles from Northern to Southern Italy. Shake Ridge Ranch, elevation of 1600-1800 feet, with deep, well-drained, river rap rock, mixed with Sierra Shale gives a lean and vibrant wine. Crisp, crunchy cherry and blackberry flavors.


WINEMAKER NOTES

The aging in American Oak results in a soft vanilla elegance.


Polenta with Mascarpone

Polenta is a staple of Italy and dates back to Roman times. We have modernized it adding a little sweetness using Mascarpone!
