Mosby Primitivo Central Coast Primativo 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Fruit purchased from Templeton Dark, leathery, and spicy in a black way on the nose with cactus fruit and smoky sandalwood top notes. Bright and rather elegant on entry with lovely earthy blackberry fruit that shows a hint of orange pith and some nicely integrated spice notes. Really well balanced with a lovely natural feel about the wine. Finishes with nice length and attractive minerality. 87pts

Bill’s winemaking interests began during his early college wrestling days in Oregon almost 50 years ago. "I fermented anything I could get my hands on," says Mosby. "I was — and still am — intrigued by the whole process." When Bill talks about his early winemaking days, he does so with an air of excitement. "As much science as we know today — technology and all that — we have barely scratched the surface when it comes to understanding the alchemic nature of wine," he explains. If you've visited the winery, then you’ve tasted his award-winning wines, caught a glimpse or two of his vineyards, and are somewhat familiar with his eccentricities. When asked to describe winemaker Bill Mosby’s character, wife Jeri answers with a smile: "Strangely enough, I would describe my husband much the same way I would characterize his wines. He’s about integrity, intelligence, strength, tenacity, passion and complexity. He’s rebellious — not afraid to dream, then make those dreams come true." Read less
