2012 Turley "Dusi Vineyard" Paso Robles Zinfandel (Previously $70)

SKU #1157730 93 points Vinous

 An explosive wine with real personality, the 2012 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard is all about voluptuousness and texture. Dark, ripe and seductive, the 2012 shows the inherent richness of Paso Robles. Sweet spices, dark plums and a hint of espresso are layered into the inviting finish. (AG)  (12/2014)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2012 Zinfandel Dusi comes from a vineyard planted in 1945, and is still farmed by the Dusi family. It is one of the stars of the vintage for Larry Turley. (RP)  (12/2013)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Riper and higher-toned on the nose than the Pesenti, hinting at blackberry and licorice. A sweet, creamy fruit bomb on the palate; in a distinctly plush style, showing terrific depth to its fruit but not quite the definition or grip of the Pesenti. In fact, this vineyard lies further inland and shows less diurnal variation than either Pesenti or Ueberroth. (ST)  (6/2014)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Silky and soft, with ripe, plush raspberry and spiced caramel flavors and smoky cherry and anise aromas. (TF)  (6/2014)
