Primitivo Clone Zinfandel
Our Primitivo Clone Zinfandel bottling, is made from 100% Primitivo and is the newest addition to our Howell Mountain Vineyards portfolio. Often thought of as just another name for the Zinfandel grape (or a cousin to Zinfandel), Primitivo has actually genetically been shown to be a clone of the Zinfandel variety, and typically ripens a bit earlier than the latter. Medium in body with beautifully reddish coloring, this wine exhibits vivid aromas of wild raspberries, black cherries, baking spices, and cracked pepper. Lightweight and fresh the palate, this wine is balanced with bright acidity and spicy tannins. The wine finishes long and clean, with generous spices lingering on the tastebuds.
