Tasting Note: A hearty primitivo-led red blend with ripe fruit that is a perfect accompaniment to mushroom and red-meat dishes.

Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of blackberry, red currant, black cherry, black plum and olive with hints of clove baking spice.

On the palate the dry, full-bodied red blend has medium-plus-intensity, black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium-plus tannin.

The red blend is straightforward with moments of midpalate complexity.

A good red blend.

Bottle Note: Sunce is a family winery located in the Russian River Valley appellation of Sonoma County – specializing in small artisan lots of vineyard designated varietal wine and classic blends. This classic Italian-style blend contains 50% Primitivo, 30% Teroldego, and 20% Negromaro. Rich and velvety in aromas of dewy lichen and saddle, with taste components of black plums, mushrooms, lamb shanks and rich meat dishes, or just as a slow sipper on its own. Only 8 barrels made.
