Pretty good, gamey, firm tannins, earthy, the darkest of dark fruits, like leathery fruits. Still with me?

This wine is like when you go on a date with someone really good looking and sweet but by the end you realize there’s not a whole lot going on underneath. Don’t be fooled by the sexy fruit bombs.

This 2015 Emporium Apassimento Salento from Puglia, Italy uses grapes that remain on the vine to rasinate. It's an equal blend of Primitivo and Negroamaro. It is ruby in color with a red hue on the rim. Aromas of cherry jam, candied apples and baking spices with a hints of tobacco and white pepper. Flavors of jammy baked fruit and rasins with touches of cherry cola and dried apricots. A good balance of baked fruits and lively acidity. Rich and plush with subtle tannins and a long finish. An awesome bottle at $15. Happy sipping!

Great surprise w/QPR out the Wazooo... copious amounts of baked rich ripe delicate red berried fruit, along side a whiff of tobacco & white pepper. Floral and feminine, just a surprisingly elegant wine for $15. Smooth w/finely grained tannins & kiss of acidity.
