2012 Inkwell Road to Joy Shiraz Primitivo

imageThe blend is 85%/15% respectively. Wild ferment as is the case with each of these Inkwell releases. Twenty-one months in French and American hogsheads.

Purple fruits, plum pudding, Old Jamaican chocolate and vanilla with baking spice. The acidity feels slightly heightened here with the tannins very tightly-knit and working their way into the picture as the wine progresses. Impressive dynamics and a real sense of synergy between the grapes. 92
