The Andis 2013 Primitivo comes from the Art Toy Vineyard, located in the Shenandoah Valley of California, which is nestled in the Amador County AVA of the Sierra Foothills. Many wonder if there is a difference is between Primitivo and Zinfandel, and while the two grapes are extremely similar genetically, they do produce distinctive wines and many grape growers will defend the unique characteristics of each wine (see blog post). One thing is certain - both grapes do extremely well in Amador County. The Andis 2013 Primitivo bursts from the glass with juicy strawberries, blackberries, and boysenberries followed by hints of chocolate, cherries and tea. It finishes with a nice spice, earthy tones, and creamy oak.
