MEM-DUSI VINEYARD COMBO PACK - 3 J. Dusi / 3 Baca Dusi (Paso Robles, CA) 6PK
J. Dusi "Estate" Zinfandel (Paso Robles, CA) 750ML: 100% Zinfandel from the Dante Dusi Vineyard, planted in 1945.
Our flagship Zin doesn’t disappoint its long-standing reputation. Quintessential of the Dante Dusi Vineyard the brambleberry beat is unmistakable. Those who are familiar with this vineyard could pick this wine out of line up (probably blind folded). Recognizable dark berries and bittersweet chocolate at first. Its ample mid palate is laced with black currant, plum and pomegranate. The finish is reminiscent of a long country road, bringing a little earth and spice home.
Baca "Double Dutch" Zinfandel 2018 (Paso Robles, CA) 750ML: DUSI VINEYARD Here, the sun drenches the vineyard and its rolling hills of rocky, alluvial soil. But then the sun sets and the cool comes in. It’s this extreme temperature swing that causes the fruit to keep its vibrant acidity while developing an intense berry profile, particularly bold spice notes of black pepper and licorice.
The 2018 vintage reveals the thoughtful side of Dusi’s personality. The color is an alluring translucent, garnet gemstone hue, while flavors of black cherry, cassis, licorice, and prairie grasses interplay over a smooth and velvety palate. A vinous grip of tannin on the finish contrasts nicely with the fruit and culminates in a finely balanced and elegant finish.
Wine Enthusiast, 92 Points: “Roasted blueberry and black-currant aromas are laid across wet rocks and dusted with a pinch of thyme on the rich and lush nose of this bottling, which satisfies like comfort food. The hearty blueberry and cassis flavors of the palate are layered with crushed oregano and more wild herbs. -MATT KETTMANN
