For 20 years Quivira Vineyards has produced a Provencal-style Rosé with Grenache as the lead variety. Additionally there is also 20% Primitivo, and smaller amounts of Counoise, Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre. There is soft fruit and soft acidity here, a wine that doesn’t overshadow any companion foods. Strawberry, stone, fruits, light citrus, black cherry, rhubarb, and subtle lemon lime fill out the palate. This is not a wine that announces itself and takes control, this is a subtle wine that is meant to be part of the meal.
This is a "Zinfandel" from Italy. It retails for $20, and that is a very nice value. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has nice cherry, slight sour cherry and smoke. On the palate, this has light tannins. Nice cherry flavors with underlying char. Good acidity. Nice finish. This is Italian all the way and would work great at the dinner table with a wide variety of foods. This is drinking quite well now
This is made from Primitivo. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has cherries and is a bit peppery. On the palate, nice acidity. Cherries. Light tannins. Medium bodied. Better with food. A nice food wine and should be under $15.
