Haywood Primitivo, in for 2.
I have had a couple cases of this from two different vintages. As my tastes harden into a preference for bold and tannin filled wines, this continues to be a wine both my wife and I enjoy. Great fruit forward style without being too ripe. Good depth of flavor and lingering finish.
“If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.”
How about a Haywood extra? It would be great to get some of his amazing Franc and Zins too.
I have had the Lang Barbera also.
I like it more than my wife.
I guess I should say that I like this wine more than my wife does… she could read this and take it the wrong way.
I remember a distinct cinnamon flavor that I like and she did not. I gave it a good QPR.
I’ve had previous vintages of both the Pavi Dolcetto and the Lang Barbera. The Dolcetto was juicy and fruit forward, the Barbera smooth and food-friendly.
