2018 HPW Primitivo
Blackberry, cinnamon, and anise, with a dark chocolate finish, grippy tannins, and bright acidity.
The HPW is 100% Primitivo and named after the eldest of the Wackman Brothers, Howard Putney Wackman III. Howard is our grower and vineyard manager, so the label features the vines he tends. The label also features the windmill, which has been on the ranch for generations and was used to provide water for the sheep that used to graze on the fields which are now vineyards. Howard chose Primitivo as his featured wine because he loves the fruit forward style, mellow tannins, and mild oak. The vines are challenging to grow but produce a very approachable wine.
Only 75 cases made.
