Layered aromas of Bing cherries and ripe, spiced strawberries are supported by focused tannins and a full, balanced body. This is an Estate vintage with superb balance of forward fruit, oak, and a sense of place amongst the typical Burgundian style characteristics.
2012 San Floriano
Aromas of buttery cherry pastry, leather, and vanilla nougat comprise the satiny medium-to-full body followed by a long, creamy mocha, spiced berry, and mineral finish. A superb sipper or table wine. As in previous vintages, Lagrein, the blue-black grape, native of the Alto Adige region of northern Italy, is the dominant grape. The resulting wine is dense, concentrated, and yet very balanced and elegant.
Elegant layers of wild berry and raspberry make up this fruit forward Zinfandel. Just the right hint of white pepper rounds out the experience, a balance that can only be provided from the famous Benito Dusi 90+ year-old dry farmed, head-pruned, ancient Zinfandel vines.
