The true essence of Primal Roots begins with the raw qualities of Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah that are artfully blended to create a smooth, full-bodied, sensual wine. The Merlot provides aromas of raspberry, red currants, and mocha along with fine-grained tannins that create a soft, luxurious texture. Merlot is the varietal that keeps this wine grounded. Syrah lends a deep purple color, silky texture, and balanced structure to the wine. Aromas of violets, black currants and a gentle earthiness are accentuated by flavors of dried cherry, dark chocolate, and vanilla spice.
Zinfandel is concentrated and rich, yet soft on the palate and loaded with black cherry, clove, and
wild blackberry. Known for its spicy characters, the Zinfandel rounds out the wine by adding a
touch of warm spice. Petite Sirah adds blueberry and spice notes that help bring all the flavors together.
