Chumeia Zinfandel Paso Robles Dante Dusi Vineyard 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit for this wine was sourced from a small, historic Paso Robles vineyard called Dusi Vineyard, located just west of the Salinas River. Zinfandel, California's grape and Paso Robles heritage. This Zinfandel has dense, rich, dark fruit flavors of raspberry, spice, black pepper and toasted oak. This family owned vineyard was started in the 1940's and is highly acclaimed for their extraordinary fruit. Sink your teeth into this Zin. 2002 was a beautiful growing season and a winemaker's dream. We hope every year can be like the 2002 vintage.
