Sunce Winery & Vineyard, Tres Italianos 2015, Fox Hill & Heringer Vineyards, California
Tasting Note: A primitivo-led Italian red blend that delivers on ripe fruit flavor and that pairs wonderfully with grilled meats.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of blackberry, red cherry, red currant, raspberry preserves, black plum and blossom with a hint of vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied red blend has medium-plus-intensity, red-and-black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin ultimately completing with a long finish.
There is robustness and complexity in the midpalate.
A jammy, Italian red blend.
