More earthy than plummy, at least at this early stage. Full, round wine that has a vanilla note to its blueberry/blackberry nose and flavors. A bit of a metallic or mineral edge in the finish. Sweet mouth feel. A good Zin, but lacks that extra dimension we find in the best of them. We were less enchanted by both the Dusi Ranch and the Paso Robles Zins than we have usually been in the past. - WB Team 2001-04-05
