Review coming soon.
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 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.
