A nice Zin from Geyserville clippings brought over to Puglia years ago. Boldly fruity but without the spicy verve most California Zins bring.

I love Zinfandel from Italy which is also a Primitivo, if I am correct. I’ve always liked Primitivo vs Zinfandel even though they are twin grapes but was never a Zinfandel fan. One is grown in Italy one in California. If I am wrong please correct me. This wine is bursting with fruit flavor. Very smooth. Paired with brisket from the smoker. Nice way to end this rainy day.

A bit raisiny, but there is also some spice and a soft, lanolin-like note on the nose. Jammy and full-bodied without being hot, the 15% abv is unnoticeable, and there is good balance with medium tannin and medium acid, and medium-plus length. This would go well with a steak, but also pasta with a Bolognese sauce, or mushrooms.
