The Mosby Primativo displays deep ruby color in the glass, hinting at its character. Rich aromas of maple, cedar and leather lead to vivid flavors of boysenberry and spiced crab apples. These integrated layers of flavor flow into a well-balanced finish with hints of toasted walnut skins. Primativo is grown in Apulie (Puglia, Italy) and is a relative to Zinfandel. The grapes for the Mosby Primativo are grown in the central coast, 20 miles inland from the Pacific ocean. This location has the ideal heat factor needed to grow good Primativo.
This wine is a natural paired with grilled meats…we like it with tri-tip, pork loin or grilled Portobello mushrooms. It’s excellent with lamb and lovely with hearty pasta dishes.
