This bold, complex and true-to-type wine offers heady tobacco, turned earth and dark-chocolate aromas followed by opulent, concentrated black-cherry, black olive and blueberry flavors, all embraced by moderate, fine-grained tannins that are beautifully integrated. Prima Materia specializes in Italian varietals but this French varietal could be its best wine yet. Best from 2026.
Wine Tasting Notes
In the Prima Materia tradition, we focus on an Old-World profile that celebrates earthy elements in conjunction with pure fruit. Ripe plum, blackberry, cassis, pepper and all sorts of purple tones meld with bass tones of rich fig, leather, and those graphite or crunchy black rock tones that make Bordeaux so special. The acid and alcohol levels were perfect, and this Cab is fully food-friendly, and devoid of vanilla and baking spice confected oak notes, staying on the Dionysian side of things.
