/ 2012 "mbf" Primitivo
SKU: MLMBFPR12

Speedy Creek Vineyard.  I first hiked the Speedy Creek Vineyard in Knights Valley with owner Dave Burton in 2008.  Speedy Creek refers to the 'speed' of their seasonal winter creek as it cascades down alongside their hillside vineyard.  Dave's Primitivo grapes have an intensity of character reflective of this true hillside terroir.

Brenda's Winemaking.  2012 is our fourth vintage of Primitivo and our wnemaking approach remains consistent--gentle handling and oak aging. Fermentation took place in an open top tank, with 3 times per day punch-downs. The wine was barreled down dirty and malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wine was aged in 100% French oak barrels for 18 months, with approximately 50% new Francois Freres barrels.

Tasting Notes
From September 2020. Reading our tasting notes at release, the 2012 has evolved quite well and shows similar flavors and character. Black cherry and blackberries have turned into beautiful plum. Hints of pepper are still present, but now with wonderful dried herbs. The wine's supple finish is still the most enjoyable character of this wine.

Food Pairing Notes
Although Primitivo is Italian in heritage, we've grown to love our Primitivo paired with lamb. Grilled lamb chops during the summer with a simple herb rub of salt, pepper and rosemary. Roasted leg of lamb in winter stuff with spinach, pine nuts and garlic cloves. And always accompanied with roasted potatoes.
