2016 Dante Dusi Vineyard Zinfandel
100% Zinfandel
Paso Robles, Templeton Gap District
 

Brilliant magenta. Highly perfumed, spice- and mineral-accented aromas of black raspberry, boysenberry and licorice carry a suave floral overtone. Stains the palate with intense, mineral-tinged red and blue fruit and spicecake flavors that deftly blend power and finesse. Finishes sweet, smoky and extremely long, with resonating florality and a lingering blueberry note. Made with 50% whole clusters and raised in neutral French and Hungarian oak barrels. -Josh Raynolds, Vinous 94 pts

There is a strong but not overripe fruit character on the nose of this bottling from historic vines, with baked strawberry, plums and mulberry as well as a dusting of sweet clove. The palate is more lightly bodied than many Zins of the area and is also full of energy, showing bright and fresh red-fruit flavors and baking spice, eliciting elements not often seen from the grape these days- Matt Kettman, Wine Enthusiast 93 pts
