2015 LEDGE Dante Dusi Vineyard
In the early 1920’s Dante Dusi planted this vineyard with an unknown Zinfandel clone, on it’s own roots. The vineyard is in the heart of the Templeton Gap District, just north of Templeton on the 101 across from brother Benito Dusi’s Zinfandel vineyard sourced by Ridge. The fruit is 50% whole cluster fermented, giving the wine a freshness and linear quality not common in Paso Robles Zinfandels. It was fermented wild and aged in 400 liter new French oak vessels for 22 months.
