Elyse- Couzins 2006

The water felt inadequate.

The water is for dousing fires.

Q: This blend of Zinfandel and Primitivo is ________?
A: Dry
B: Dirty
C: Balanced
D: Smooth
E: All of the above in one delightful bottle

Duh, the answer is E(xcellent). We ordered a bottle of this during a recent dinner with my roommate and her sister at 18 Seaboard in Raleigh.  Since we were all having red meat, we needed something that could stand up to the bold flavors on the menu at 18 Seaboard (an excellent value for a gourmet meal in Raleigh).  We wanted bold and we got it.  The aroma could singe your nosehairs if you aren’t careful, but believe us- it would be worth it.

$25-30 at various online retailers.



  1. I love blends like this….and this particular one sounds fabulous. Hope to find it in VT sometime….
