Black pepper, molasses, pie crust and structure to beat the band. Huckleberry, Bing cherry and fire ash are on parade. Serious wine, seriously delicious. —Charles

Current & Past Scores

92 Points, James Suckling

“This is a fun primitivo with dried-berry character. It’s dense and fruit-forward, yet there is a tension and form at the end. You could even call it reserved. Drink or hold.

91 Points, Jeb Dunnuck (formerly of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate)

“The 2018 Primitivo Porcospino is terrific, offering lots of juicy berry fruits as well as notes of black pepper, new leather, violets, and chocolate. Upfront, nicely textured, yet also with good freshness and fine tannins, it’s a pleasure-bent beauty to enjoy over the coming 4-6 years.”


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.
