Our flagship Zin doesn’t disappoint its long-standing reputation. Quintessential of the Dante Dusi Vineyard the brambleberry beat is unmistakable.  Those who are familiar with this vineyard could pick this wine out of line up (probably blind folded).  Recognizable dark berries and bittersweet chocolate at first. Its ample mid palate is laced with black currant, plum and pomegranate.  The finish is reminiscent of a long country road, bringing a little earth and spice home.

94 points; Decanter

Outer quote mark Deep ruby hue. Concentrated sweet ripe black fruit aromas, reminiscent of bramble-picking from hedgerows, with an

undercurrent of leaf and briar.The palate is equally brimming with freshly picked fruit: blue, red and dark berry flavours

but also an impressive concentration of mineral earth –almost a ferrous quality that elevates the wine to a much more profound

liquid. Tannins are densely woven but supple, the alcohol brings sucrosity rather than heat, and is held in check by a fresh seam

of acidity. Very complete wine. The finish is long and highly flavoured, and when the flavours finally fade, you’re still left with a

sensation of elegant power. A wine that will age beautifully for a decade or more. Drinking Window 2020 - 2035Inner quote mark
