We’ve got a special one from our winery partner today. With only 159 cases produced this is Zinfandel from the famed, almost 100 year-old, dry-farmed Benito Dusi Vineyard in Paso Robles. (You may recognize the Benito Dusi name from the excellent Ridge Vineyard bottlings.)
Thanks to their shared Italian heritage Piedra Creek founder and winemaker Romeo “Meo” Zuech was good friends with Benito Dusi. In fact, Piedra Creek has been making Zinfandel from this vineyard since 1979 and selling a Benito Dusi Zin bottling since 1984.

From the bottle:
This Benito Dusi, Paso Robles Zinfandel is a vibrant, fruit-forward Zinfandel, boasting aromas of mocha, lively cherry, and smoky sage with a hint of pepper. Ripe black cherry jam flavors upon entry, with lively acidity and fruit-covered tannins in the mid-palate, are supported by a sweet oaky finish to round out the experience.
Pair this Zinfandel with a succulent filet mignon or an Italian inspired dish of pasta.

The 2014 Piedra Creek Benito Dusi Vineyard Zinfandel begins with a very pleasing aroma of black cherry and some brambly berry notes, spice, mint, cola, cedar and more. There's lots to smell here as you swirl so take your time with this one.
Taking a sip reveals a really lovely example of Zinfandel. This is quite tasty with good concentration on the fruit, well integrated spice, a smooth mouthfeel and good balance. This 2014 is drinking beautifully right now and it still has plenty of life left.
It ends dry, slightly grippy and very long with some sweet oaky notes under the lasting berry fruit.
And if you'd like to learn more about the winery there's a fascinating history of Romeo here, who was an aerospace engineer on the Apollo 11 mission before he founded Piedra Creek.
