2017 BACA Double Dutch Zinfandel
Zinfandel - Dusi Vineyard, Paso Robles 2017 Vintage
"Sourced from the Dusi Vineyard the ‘Double Dutch’ is sourced from 50 year old head-trained Zinfandel. The wine opens with aromas of ripe strawberry with underbrush and guava puree that all build on the nose. The mouthfeel is plush, delivering jammy red fruits that mingle with a good sense of minerality. The combination of weight and freshness is seriously good."

Paso Robles AVA – 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 Dusi flavor profile we love so much is particularly expressive in this vintage. The nose opens with a powerful essence of blackcurrant and black cherry, highlighted with herbaceous notes of bay, thyme, and black pepper. Very put-together in character, the supple, concentrated palate is balanced with a lift of acid, while hints of licorice and spices provide a lingering finish.
