Doffo Unfiltered Zinfandel Temecula Valley 2010

Member Review by EMark:

I bought this at the winery a year and a half ago, and I seemed to recall it as a giant fruit bomb. Well, I'm still of that opinion. It is almost syrupy with TONS of blackberry, prune and tropical fruit content. Normally, I would hate something like this, but this is so over the top, that it's likable as a parody of so many popular low-dollar (which this definitely ain't) wines. US$55.20 at the winery in Temecula in 2012.

  Marcelo, Zulma and Damian Doffo invite you to visit the charming home of Doffo Winery. Nestled on the Northeast border of the Temecula Valley the winery was founded in 1997 by Marcelo. It is one of a few micro-boutique wineries in the region and the only one built around the former site of a historic landmark schoolhouse.  When selecting the property, Marcelo was drawn to the schoolhouse because it reminded him of his childhood in Argentina where he attended a similar school. The winery is situated on 15 acres of hand planted vineyards, carefully tended by the Doffo family with techniques handed down from generation to generation. It also consists of wine production facilities and a charismatic tasting room complete with vintage scooters and motorcycles that come from the family's private collection. Reminiscent of their Italian/Argentine heritage, Doffo is the only winery in the region to feature an outdoor, wood-burning oven and grill where they often serve "The Parilla",  a delicious staple of the Argentine table, served with their own Chimichuri sauce and paired with exceptional Doffo wine. The winery also has a private tasting patio for wine club members and a beautiful terraced mesa overlooking the vineyards and surrounding valley. When you visit you will first be met with the sound of classical music throughout the property. They play this to soothe the plants. Famous for exquisite, handcrafted reds, Doffo is focused on small lot, limited production wines made in the old world style. It is also home to MotoDoffo, the family's private collection of over 100 racing and vintage motorcycles. The Doffo's are proud to share their Argentine and Italian heritage throughout the winery and they hope this translates to your experience.   Visit us once and you are family forever.  Read less
