"The Dusi vineyard was planted by Dante Dusi in 1945 and it is farmed by his family to this day. The vines are head-trained and dry-farmed, planted in soil that is mostly alluvial with some very large rocks. Like our other vineyards in the area, Dusi is on the west side of Paso Robles. The darker, more plush cousin to the Pesenti Zinfandel. Wild black cherries and lavender alongside crème de mur, blueberries and gravel. Exceptionally expressive on the palate, with blue-black fruits and more density and structure than years previous. Feel free to crack it & attack it, as it’s good to go!"
"Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard offers aromas of tar, boysenberry, licorice, earth and dried herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with very pretty fruit layers—delicate and lifted—softly framed and juicy with a long, perfumed finish." Robert Parker 93 Points
"The 2018 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard is laced with tons of rich, exuberant fruit, but is also impeccably balanced. Lavender, spice, plum and sweet purple fruit all infuse this mid-weight, super-expressive Zinfandel. I very much like the energy here." Antonio Galloni 92-94 Points
