Price: $25.00


Brooding Primitivo. Dark flavors, black cherry, plum, cold ash intertwined with dried herbs and cool stone. Delivering a deep, compelling, serious Washington wine. - Charles


92 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)
“Lots of spices, plums, blueberries, peppery spice, and cedar emerge from the 2017 Primitivo Porcospino. Medium-bodied, fresh, and lively on the palate, with surprising elegance, it’s great today yet should evolve for 4-5 years or more on its balance.”

90 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (v2015)

“Coming from a notable vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, the 2015 Primitivo Northridge Vineyard is another downright irresistible red from this label. Offering up loads of ripe, jammy berry fruits, flowers, spice and hints of incense, it hits the palate with mediumbodied richness, no hard edges, lots of sweet fruit and a weightless, elegant and gulpable texture. This beauty has class and is well worth drinking!”

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices. Northridge (100%): Planted in 2003, this vineyard is a very unique 92 acre site in the Wahluke Slope. An alluvial fan gravel bed, the site rests above the flood plain of the Columbia River. Under the topsoil is a layer of caliche and basalt, 6-12 inches deep, creating a calcium and iron rich media that forces roots to struggle.
