"One of the more immediate wines in this range, the 2013 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard offers plenty of intensity and richness, with bright veins of acidity that prop up the flavors nicely and balances some of the more overt elements in the glass. The exuberance of Paso comes through nicely. Hints of tobacco, menthol and licorice add nuance to a core of sweet red stone fruits. -AG" –Oct 2015
The Dusi vineyard was planted by Dante Dusi in 1945 and is still farmed by his family to this day. The vines are head-trained and dry-farmed, planted in soil that is mostly alluvial with some very large rocks. Like Turley's other
vineyards in the area, Dusi is on the west side of Paso Robles. The 2013 Dusi was severely affected by the drought, and as a result they have much
less of this wine than in years past. What remains, however, is a fantastic and even more “serious” version of the wine.
Winemaking: Fermentation with only natural yeasts; 80% French oak, 20% American oak (80% used, 20% new). Aged for approximately 15 months.
