Ridge Zinfandel Paso Robles 2010

Ridge Zinfandel Paso Robles 750ML 2010    
Sku: 19066

History
The Benito Dusi Ranch is the only vineyard in the Central Coast Viticultural Area from which we source grapes. The 1967 vintage was our first wine from this vineyard. It is planted entirely to zinfandel, unusual in a vineyard more than eighty years old. Purchased by Sylvester and Catarina Dusi in 1924, the property has been farmed since the 1940s by their son Benito, the owner.

Winemaker's Notes
Garnet/medium ruby. Cherry-rhubarb compote, crushed pepper, creamy oak. Bright fruit entry, elegant mid-palate, great fruit/tannin balance; lively acidity in a long finish.

Winemaking
Benito Dusi Vineyard grapes, hand harvested. Destemmed and crushed. Fermented on the native yeasts, followed by full malolactic on the naturally occurring bacteria. A total of 1.4 percent rehydration (added to one fermentor during fermentation). Minimum effective sulfur (35ppm at crush, 90 ppm over the course of aging). Pad filtered at bottling. In keeping with our philosophy of minimal intervention, this is the sum of our actions.
