2015 Ridge Vineyards "Benito Dusi Ranch" Paso Robles Zinfandel

SKU #1295772 93 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Precise Zinfandel fruit sits amidst an attractive bit of vanillin oak in the deep and well-defined aromas of this immediately inviting Zin, and the wonderfully pure berrylike qualities that mark its start are at center stage all the way to the end. Along the way, the wine teases with subtle briar and graphite complexities, and, if never in the camp of powerhouse versions, it exhibits more than enough stamina and staying power. Balanced to firmness and lightly tannic, it is easy to like now but promises to be even better if cellared, and, given the choice, we would wait for a few years before pulling its cork. **Two Stars** Inner quote mark (5/2017)

Outer quote mark The 2015 Zinfandel Paso Robles (100% Zinfandel) is a downright sexy, exuberant, extrovert that boasts tons of black raspberry and blueberry fruits, incense, spice-box and potpourri aromas and flavors. Soft, voluptuous and seamless on the palate, with tons of sweet fruit and a forward, medium-bodied style, drink it anytime over the coming 4-6 years. (JebDunnuck.com) Inner quote mark (8/2017)

K&L Notes

The Benito Dusi Ranch in Paso Robles is the only vineyard that Ridge uses south of the San Francisco Bay area. Originally planted by Sylvester and Caterina Dusi in 1923 after emigrating from Italy, these old vines produce phenomenal fruit. With excellent Zinfandel-growing temperatures and rocky soils, the Dusi Vineyard wines are known for their juicy bramble fruit and velvety tannins. According to the winery, these are wines that "consistently show deep, juicy bramble fruit on the palate, along with notes of black cherry, gravelly earth, and rich chocolate. Paso Robles is Zinfandel at its finest."
