2007 Tormaresca Neprica

What a great find! Had a glass last night at Calabriella (used to be Calabria) in downtown Kirkland, and was pleasantly surprised! A blend of 40% Negromaro, 30% Primativo and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and unoaked. Complex flavors of cassis, blackberry, tobacco, mocha, tar and licorice with a lingering, smooth finish. It really went well with the Penne Carretteria (ham, peas in a Aurora sauce) I had for dinner. $7 for a glass pour and you can probably find a bottle retailing around $10.
