A huge, lush wine made from 100% primitivo grapes — the Italian cousin to zinfandel — from the Rose Vineyard in Sonoma Valley. Enjoy now or cellar.
This is our first attempt at primitivo. The fruit comes from the Rose Vineyard off Adobe Road in Kenwood in the Sonoma Valley. Owners Steve & Colleen Rose own the Spanish Tapas Bar The Vineyard Inn on route 12 in the heart of Kenwood. The vineyard is planted with primitivo and merlot. ‘Red Dress’ spent 30 months in the barrel and was bottled in July, 2015.
