Wild Hogge 'Moongate' Primitivo

Grape Variety: 75% Zinfandel, 13% Cab Franc, 12% Syrah

Region: Paso Robles, California, USA

Tasting Notes: This wine is a blend of Primitivo 75%, Cabernet Franc 12.5%, and Syrah 12.5%, all sourced from neighboring vineyards. Primitivo, an Italian Zinfandel, contributes an unique taste of rich ripe fruit. The Cab Franc adds a little black pepper, and the spicy Syrah balances out the richness of the Primitivo. Matured in American oak for 2 years and in the bottle for another 2 years, the wine exhibits a powerful aroma of earthiness and dark berry fruit. The palate has a rich texture and notes of blackberry jam. Will go well with any lamb dish or rich Italian meal. 177 cases were produced.
