RIDGE PASO ROBLES BENITO DUSI RANCH ZINFANDEL
In 1967 Ridge first bought Zinfandel from this vineyard, then farmed by Benito Dusi. Today, his nephew, Mike Dusi, continues to tend the old, dry-farmed vines. Picked at ideal ripeness, the 2020 is exceptionally well balanced in fruit, tannin, and acid. It is enjoyable as a young wine for its exuberant fruit and will continue to evolve over seven to eight years
- Size: .750L
Appealingly old-school, with sturdy blackberry, licorice and briar patch accents that race toward zesty tannins.
