Ripe raspberry and strawberry parfait aromatics and flavors with dark chocolate and fresh vanilla bean that seem to wrap around a core of black cherries.
90 Pts Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine
"Calling any of Mr. Cohn's Zinfandels "light" would be to give the wrong impression, with a family of big, broad-shouldered siblings the Dusi Vineyard bottling is the least muscle-bound of the brood. That, however, is not to say that it lacks for richness or concentration, and it steers to strawberries and plums with a mild trim of milk chocolate to its ongoing fruit. It tends slightly to softness on entry and initially impresses as wine to drink soon, but its aggressive, back-palate tannins make a strong case for three to five years of patience."
This head trained vineyard with 70 year old vines and alluvial soils with large rocks bring brightness and lightness to the wine, it's never over the top. Growers Dante and Mike Dusi are great growers, producing great fruit complimenting a long relationship between Jeff and the Dusi family.
"Sunshine in a glass" is how Jeff describes this wine. It is named after his daughter 'Isabel' who is light hearted and easy going.
