(Spring 2012 Ridge Wine Club notes)
Benito Dusi Ranch. The 1967 vintage was our first wine from this vineyard.It is planted entirely to zinfandel, unusual in a vineyard more than 80 years old.
Purchased by Sylvester and Catarina Dusi in 1924, the property has been farmed since the 1940s by their son Benito, the owner.
Wines from this location consistently show deep, juicy bramble fruit on the palate, along with notes of black cherry, gravelly earth, and rich chocolate.
