Tobin James 2013 Primitivo. Missing that Old World characteristic, but great hot fruit. Blackberry, rich vanilla, the color is intense. Would be interested at 15.6% how it would lay up.

Fantastic as a table wine -- equally good first, second and third days. Doesn't change a ton with more time/O-2 but does mellow a little each day.
Summer Fruits, black pepper, bit of coffee... smooth-ish; more structure than expected for the price.
Fairly long finish tapers off to a whiff of smoke with hints of vanilla-fire
