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. (RP)
Bright ruby. Superripe aroma of maraschino cherry liqueur, with exotic hints of peach and apricot. 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. (ST)
