Well, it was time for a comparison change of pace from all these beautiful wines from Italy.
Dante Dusi began with an 'unfiltered' appearance the color is a consistent cran-plum, and still with a clear rim-ring.
For the first time ever I would describe the aroma as having a brownie note, as well as the usual sweet cooking spices, cedar, and plum.
A medium body carries good acidity, refined tannin, with quite a tangy bramble-berry flavor.
The finish is long on tart red cherry and spice.
Under the $20.00 mark, this is a very nice wine with loads of character; so much so, that at an even higher price it would be worth the unique Zinfandel experience.
We liked this wine as a stand-alone sipper.
To be fair to those who might grab this wine on my account, the wine critics were not so kind to this wine.
