Description
 
We have been making a light/fresh style of Zinfandel for years, so when we saw that our new Estate was planted to a small block of Primitivo, Aaron was very excited to work with it. Primitivo is an Italian clone of Zinfandel, which has smaller berries than California Zinfandel, which yield wines of more concentration, structure and weight.

Our first Estate Primitivo wine opens with notes of earth, chalk, and minerality, that lead into concentrated flavors of strawberry compote, baking spices, blackberry and boysenberry, which is brought back on the finish with chewy, drying tannins and bright acidity.

Winemaking

Our first estate Primitivo was 75% de-stemmed and 25% whole cluster, fermented in large open-air fermentation vessels during its two week native fermentation. Once dry, we pressed the wine off into old French Oak barrels where it aged for 11 months before being bottled without fining or filtering.

"Gold Dust Estate Vineyard"
Our estate vineyard resides on a ridge line at 2700' elevation in the Fair Play AVA of southern El Dorado County where the significant diurnal shift and well draining granitic soils yield wines minerality, amazing aromatics and great structure.
