Castoro Cellars

When we say "reasonable and bold" what comes to mind? That's right. Pretty much nobody these days. But surprise! Because all these Castoro Cellars wines are both bold AND reasonably priced! See that, guy who stole our girlfriend that night in the sports bar? The two concepts aren't mutually unexclusive.

Wow! My first time as the first Wooter, and I didn't even notice it until several hours later. Shouldn't I win some sort of a prize for finally having my cherry popped?

The wine will be your prize. This is one of the best Paso wineries IMO. Zins are to die for.

Thanks for stopping in. The Primitivo looks really interesting/good. Do you have a suggested drinking window for this wine? Do you expect it to change much over time?

Hope these are higher quality wines than the $10 ones Trader Joe's carries!

I loved the 2008 Primitivo, and look forward to trying the 2009.

I love this wine with hearty BBQ and pastas. Very rich wine.

Ha Ha - these are not at all the same wines. TJ's has never had these wines and currently don't have any of our brand in there. If you try and don't agree we can have a further discussion.

Hi

Im looking at the zins n primitivo. Many yelpers seem to like the primitivo and im wondering if its becauae its fruit forward with some residual sugar. I prefer dry reds so hoping not the case. Can you comment on the RS, oak treatment, and tasting profile for the pri itivo as well as both zins? I enjoy small production wines and the zins fit the bill. Also, what was the oak treRment? Not a big fan of overly-oaked vanilla tasting zins.....thanks!

I would say our primitivo is less berry and fruity than the Zins. It is a bit earthier, dry with a bit more spice in it. Our oak is not excessive at all, we like to let the grape speak first. Should be right up your alley.

The good news is that I got my wine today. The bad news is that I received absolutely no tracking info beforehand. If it's like my last wine woot order, I'll get the tracking info 2 days from now. Sad.

Argggghhhh. I sent this in to CS so they can see what happened. So sorry. If it wouldn't be too much trouble, could you also send the info in via Beta Feedback. (It really is read and does help.)
