Primitivo and Zinfandel are considered clones of a Croatian grape called Crljenak Kaštelanski. In Italy, Primitivos may legally be labeled as Zinfandel and shipped to the United States, while here in the USA, the two are considered distinctly different grapes. Confusing? Let’s move on to this delicious wine using grapes from one of the Wahluke Slope’s top vineyards. It opens with aromas of slate, Cherry Garcia ice cream, raspberry and spices. On the palate, elegant flavors of boysenberry, blueberry and raspberry jam give way to white pepper and a long, yummy finish.
