Winemaker Notes

The darker, more plush cousin to the Pesenti Zinfandel. Wild black cherries and lavender alongside crème de mur, blueberries and gravel. Exceptionally expressive on the palate, with blue-black fruits and more density and structure than years previous. Feel free to crack it & attack it, as it’s good to go.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard offers aromas of tar, boysenberry, licorice, earth and dried herbs. The palate is medium-bodied with very pretty fruit layers—delicate and lifted—softly framed and juicy with a long, perfumed finish.

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Jammy yet structured, with vibrant raspberry, white pepper, crushed stone and licorice accents that speed along the finish toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2027.

Central Coast, California

View all products

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven Central Coast wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
