Food Pairings for Andis Wines Indian Creek Vineyard Primitivo Amador County
While recent research has indicated Primitivo is genetically identical to Zinfandel, what we see in the winemaking process is a grape that behaves like Zinfandel's more mature and sophisticated cousin. Rich with all the attributes we love about Zin, dense fruit, big structure, complex finish, it also consistently has spectacular color and very silky tannins. Quickly becoming one of our favorites, we've found there are few occasions or pairings where this Primitivo doesn't shine. The 2011 vintage was sourced from the wonderful Shenandoah Valley vineyard farmed by Art Toy. It possesses aromas of blueberry and black cherry, accented by a hint of mint and cedar. Medium bodied with a core of jammy fruit and soft silky tannins, it finishes with just a touch of pepper and spice. Best decanted prior to serving.
