Mr. Wayne L.Prim, JR grew up exploring and tasting wines across wine regions the world over. His home base is Incline, Nevada, and he has long been familiar with wines from Napa. Prim Family Vineyard incorporates the best of Mr. Wayne L.Prim, JR’s wine knowledge and experience with a good serving of Rudy von Strasser, the King of Cabernet, an expert winemaker in his own right.
They bonded over their shared love of winemaking, and Mr. Wayne L.Prim, JR then hired Rudy to make and manage his “outside of the Napa norm” winemaking program. Their first vintage yielded in 2009, and it has been a bountiful journey since then.
One such production from the early days is their 2012 Prim Family Vineyard Pinot Noir, a showy hue in the glass revealing a bright and aromatic nose, raspberry, black currant, red cherry, and cedar flavours, a hint of white pepper along with subtle underlying notes of brown sugar and holiday spice.
The next phase of Mr. Wayne L.Prim, JR’s wine projects will involve Craig Roemer, another famed winemaker, whose experience was cultivated at Schramsberg Vineyards, St. Helena, California.
Mr. Wayne L.Prim, JR is excited about Black Sea Beverages’ future, especially knowing he has a supportive and innovative team on board.
