2016 Ledge "Dante Dusi Vineyard" Paso Robles Zinfandel

SKU #1432820 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark 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. *Editors' Choice* (MK) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Zinfandel Dante Dusi Vineyard, made with 50% whole cluster, has a pale to medium ruby color and aromas of baked peaches, Italian plum, red cherry preserves, prosciutto, dust, tree bark and amaro with touches of dried flowers. Light to medium-bodied, it's delicate and pretty with spice and bitters accents and a long, lifted finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

Planted back in the 1920s, these head-trained, dry-farmed vines visible from Highway 101 are some of the most sought-after in the region. Winemaker Mark Adams, longtime assistant winemaker at Saxum, brings a huge skill set to the table. This particular wine is fermented wild, 50% whole cluster, and aged in neutral puncheons (double size barrels). The wine has a lift and vitality unlike many other Paso Zins. Check it out.
