TASTING NOTES: Aromas of mocha, black cherry, vanilla, and spice give way to a silky texture along with rich flavors of raspberries, chocolate, and dark caramel that are truly uninhibited. THE BLEND: The true essence of Primal Roots begins with the raw qualities of Merlot, Syrah, and Zinfandel 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. WINEMAKING: The grapes are harvested at optimal ripeness when the color, flavors, acids, and tannins are all in balance. The fruit is crushed, destemmed, and cold-soaked for three days to allow juice/skin contact before fermentation. This process yields a deep color, rich texture, and more concentrated fruit flavors in the final wine. As fermentation begins, the temperature is kept at 85–90°F and the wines are pressed when the tannins are soft, supple, and well-integrated. After pressing, the wines are racked several times and go through complete malolactic fermentation. Oak aging helps build the structure while introducing the underlying vanilla, cream, and mocha characteristics. The final step is blending each of these uniquely different wines in such a way that captures their wild, sweet, and intense flavors with a balanced and rich texture that makes you want to explore its many layers. Varieties: 34% Syrah 32% Merlot 15% Zinfandel 14% Petite Sirah 5% Other Reds Total Acidity: 5.6g/L pH: 3.8 RS: 18g/L Alcohol: 13.2%
