Deep garnet in color, this Rhone blend has an essence of licorice and dried flowers on the nose. This wine opens with bright cherry, chased with toasted nuts. It rolls into clove and dark chocolate on the mid palate, followed by deep notes of cranberry and pomegranate on the finish.

Growing Conditions

Farmed by the Dusi Family, our Paper Street Vineyard straddles between Willow Creek and Adelaida AVAs in the hills of Paso Robles. Its virgin soils, steep slopes and rugged terrain make for intensely bold and saturated wines.


Janell Dusi is the proprietor and winemaker, specializing in Zinfandel. She is a 4th generation farmer who is the first of the family to go beyond farming to produce wines from the Dusi Vineyards. She honors her heritage by winemaking in the most native form; handpicking, hand sorting and stomping her wines by foot. Her signature style is continued with non-invasive wine handling and gentle barrel aging.
