Dashe Cellars Zinfandel Louvau Vyd 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Deep, savory and mineral on the nose with slow to emerge notes of ink and carob. This smells old bony and dusty and firm, with a flourish of licorice and old books aromas. Lively and clear on the palate with boysenberry and citrus clementine, a little chocolate covered clementine flavors layered over a core of cedary, burnished cherry fruit. this grows in intensity in the mouth, sort of like a bouncing ball in reverse, gaining height and impact. Gaining chewy depth and power, and turning savory on the long finish, which shows excellent complexity with nuanced blue fruit and inky flavors on the long finish. Another wine with great cut but on sense the alcohol here as it adds a little sweetness to the palate. 93pts

Pretty perfumed on the nose with nuanced oak, floral, and light white pepper spice notes accenting the cool and mineral-inflected blue fruit of the nose. On entry, this is light and finely-textured, very transparent with wonderfully crisp raspberry and wild black cherry flavors married to a nice vanillin streak The finish is long, with a nice savory spice element and a hint of cocoa and red currant on the finale. 92 points
