It's not every day that one comes across a domestic Primitivo, let alone one that is this good. But that shouldn't be a surprise coming from Duane David Dappen, of D-Cubed Cellars. As he explains, "Primitivo is the clone of Zinfandel that is grown in Italy and pairs well with similar foods." He sourced the fruit from the Cypress Ranch in Pope Valley, on the back-side of Howell Mountain and added 9.6% of Zinfandel into his final blend. It feels at once like a D-Cubed Zin but also a little different with flavors of all kinds of saturated berries from strawberries to blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and even a little dark cherry on the nose. The palate is rich and full and gives an impression of sweeter toned fruit with dried herb/sage notes. And as Duane concludes, "It finishes with slightly rustic tannins, befitting the name Primitivo." It's the perfect wine for any Zin fan looking to try something new and fun.
