A big ripe Amarone-like bouquet emerges from the dark ruby/purple-colored 2001 Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard. Full-bodied rich and chewy with loads of briery black cherry raspberry and currant fruit it remains the reference point for what Zinfandel can achieve in Contra Costa. A sweet spot in the mid-palate (because of the high glycerin) results in a hypothetical blend of California Zinfandel and Italian Amarone. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years. Tel. (707) 963-0940

A large-scaled lush fruit bomb with dense creamy fruit and noteworthy depth of flavor. Has the sheer guts to buffer its substantial tannic spine. Reminded me of the 2000 version.
