Wine Review: This medium garnet colored Zinfandel very very good. It opens with a very shy strawberry, black currant, and lavender bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, smooth, silky, and easy to drink for a Zin. The flavor profile is a stewed black plum and boysenberry blend with notes of black tea, and oak. We also detected hints of vanilla and spice in the mix. The finish is dry and its flavors and well-managed tannins drift away nicely. The Tasting Panel would pair this Zin with slow cooked beef brisket or with a pot roast. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: An homage to a strong young woman from Casto, Italy who broke the traditional bonds of the time, traveling alone across the Atlantic and the breadth of the United States. She became the driving force behind two of the most recognized Zinfandel vineyards in California: Benito Dusi Ranch and Dante Dusi Vineyard. Caterina Gazzaroli - my great grandmother, matriarch of the Dusi Family, and creator of many of our Family Traditions. This wine's palate twists and twirls with candied cherries and bright berries. Warm oven baked fruits and brittle toffee dance all around mid-palate. The lengthy dark fruit finish glides into a standing ovation of earth and spice.
