Bootleg Southern Red 2003 wine review by (PB)


This closeout wine was $5 so I bought 3. This wine is 1/4 Primitivo (the genetic grandpa of Zinfandel) the same of Montepulciano, Negroamaro, and Una Di Troia. The bouquet is big with daffodils and gardenia with a touch of caraway--wow!

This wine is a young looking dark purple still with black cherry pie notes rising after opening.

It is well made with interesting hints of green herbs, ripe black fruit and for this price, it's a no brainer. Raise a glass.
