(N0821-111) 15 RIDGE DUSI RANCH PASO ROBLES ZINFANDEL  $35.99
U.S. Newly Available 08/21
(stocked regularly) Underground Wine Letter OUTSTANDING PLUS: 'This wine is made from the historic Dusi Ranch Zinfandel vineyard in Paso Robles. Ridge's first wine from Dusi Ranch was in 1967. The vines here are all Zinfandel and over 85 years old. Today the vineyard is farmed by the second generation of the Dusi family. This is yet another great example of the long term benefits of a coordinated effort between the farmers and the wine makers. The old Zinfandels from Paso Robles are legendary. But a lot of the old vineyards disappeared during prohibition. Dusi is one of the survivors. The wines are characteristically very rich and intense. The production of this wine is 2000 cases. The color is dark and the wine has a deep plum like perfume with faint chocolate and spice nuances. Lush and rounded with well integrated soft underlying tannins this Zinfandel is loaded with fruit. Plums and blackberries are intermingled with tinges of spice and a faint cedary tinge. This is a very refined, complex, flavorful, and balanced wine that should rank with the very best of the Dusi Ranch Zinfandels.'

SPAIN Newly Available 08/21
Parker 91: 'Most of the Moncayo wines tend to sell for higher prices, but the 2014 Alto Moncayo Veraton is their least expensive cuvee, overseen by famous Barossa Australian winemaker Chris Ringland. Made from 100% Grenache, it was aged in 60% new French oak and 40% American oak barrels for 16 months prior to bottling without filtration. This is a 1,500-case cuvee that is pedal-to-the-metal material, as one might expect from Ringland. With an opaque ruby/purple color, beautiful blackberry, charcoal and oaky notes are followed by a modern-style wine with huge fruit, big body, sweet tannin and a long finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.'
