2016 Paper Street Zinfandel
100% Zinfandel. The name J Dusi is synonymous with Zinfandel, so Janell will always produce a Paper Street Zin.
This Paper Street Zinfandel stands apart from The Dante Dusi Vineyard in so many ways. It commads contral of the glass with the dark and intense fruit structure with light spice and big bursts of boldness.
Hand harvested from the rugged terrain of the Paper Street Vineyard, she lets the grapes speak for themselves. Listen carefully and you'll be rewarded.

Youthful violet color. Displays a complex array of ripe black and blue fruits, exotic spices and candied flowers, along with hints of vanilla and woodsmoke. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense blueberry, cherry liqueur, violet pastille and mocha flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. Finishes impressively long and sappy, with excellent clarity, sneaky tannins and lingering florality.

The standout in the lineup is the 2016 Zinfandel Paper Street Vineyard, which comes from a higher elevation site in the cooler Willow Creek District of Paso Robles. Aged 20 months in 50% new French oak, it offers a complex bouquet of plums, orange liqueur, and cedary spice. It’s nicely balanced, has some lifted volatile acidity (yet it doesn’t detract), medium body, and a beautiful finish. Drink this pleasure-bent Zinfandel over the coming 5-7 years.
