Mutt Lynch MBF Primitivo 2017, Speedy Creek Vineyard, Knights’s Valley$32.00
Mutt Lynch Winery was born in 1995 combining Brenda Lynch’s passion for wine and “all things dog.” The motto for the winery comes from Sark – Apply Dog Logic to Life: Eat Well, Be Loved, Get Petted, Sleep Alot, Dream of a Leash-Free World. Brenda’s first wine was a Zinfandel called Domaine du Bone. The whimisical names and labels continue, but the wine is serious – seriously good! Mutt Lynch Winery is proud to support local and national animal organizations in their tireless efforts to save pets’ lives and continue the efforts of such organizations as Canine Companions for Independence. In communities throughout the country, Mutt Lynch partners with wine shops, restaurants and local animal rescue groups in support of their fundraising efforts. The 2017 Mutt Lynch MBF Primitivo, the ninth vintage of the MBF (Man’s Best Friend) Primitivo, is truly delicious. Primitivo is a close cousin to Zinfandel. Its name derives from the terms primativus or primaticcio, which refer to the grape’s tendency to ripen earlier than other varieties. However, Speedy Creek Vineyard’s hillside location and more extreme growing conditions produce small intensely flavored berries that ripen later in the growing season. Always evocative of the Italian province of Apulia (Puglia), this varietal is legendary (think last supper legendary). In the 2016 expression, you’ll be struck by the beautiful garnet color and nose of black cherries and hint of pepper. It’s smooth on entry, medium-bodied and with a flavor palette of cherries, blackberries and licorice. Light in tannins but well-structured, this is one smooth wine! This wine would pair well with a dry Sonoma Jack, Gouda or Gruyere cheese. For a stellar entrée pairing try it with lamb kabobs. 142 cases produced.
