Really? Another Mike? I think we’re onto something. Mike Dashe’s wines are another style, seemingly straddling the space between Talty and Carlisle. These wines skirt the lines between elegance and richness, always delivering a lovely, rich and expressive style of Zin.
The one outlier here is the L’Enfant Terrible Zinfandel (they also make a Grenache). Native yeast, neutral barrels, low SO2, organic fruit. It’s a geek wine and like nothing you’ve tried before when it comes to Zinfandel. Wild, but lean and wiry.
This is the Modern Dance of Zinfandel.
