Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Teldeschi Vineyard Zinfandel is the quintessential Dry Creek Valley Zin: inky black color, aromas of blue fruits, blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate, and black pepper. The weight and structure are nothing short of extraordinary. The finish is lengthy and enjoyable. 76% Zinfandel, 19% Petite Sirah, 5% Carignane
Vineyard Notes
Lorenzo Teldeschi returned from America to his family's Tuscan village of Casabasciana to procure a wife, only to enlist in the Italian army when World War I broke out. When Lorenzo went missing in action, his wife Eugenia and the townspeople grew resigned to the inevitable and staged a memorial. Imagine the scene in Casabasciana when, a few days after his "funeral," Lorenzo Teldeschi came walking into town. A year later, he and his wife had their second son, Franco. The family eventually returned to California and Franco (who began calling himself Frank in America) planted his own vineyard and sold the grapes to Italian home winemakers in San Francisco. Sometime later, during the 1970's, a young winemaker came to their house in Dry Creek Valley and asked if he could buy grapes for his new winery, Ravenswood. He and Frank sat down under a tree and Frank opened a bottle of his homemade wine. Four hours later, Joel Peterson could hardly walk, but he had a deal for a few tons of Zinfandel. Today, Ravenswood is lucky enough to get the grapes from the entire vineyard.
95 Points

Wild berry, coffee and earth define the perfume arising from this single vineyard Zinfandel, which also blends in 19% Petite Sirah and 5% Carignane. Aged for 19 months in French oak, and boasting an abv of 15.1%, this inky black wine is a zinphony of taste and texture. Creamy blackberry and anise adds weight and coats the tongue, while dark chocolate melts on a black pepper path.

Very Good+ & 90 Points

This midnight violet colored Zinfandel from the Dry Creek opens with a boysenberry and prune bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and very juicy. The flavor profile is an extracted blackberry and plum with notes of minerality, oak and rasperry tea. The finish is dry and its medium tannins and nice acidity show good length. This Zin would pair well with braised short ribs.

90 Points

From the historic site on the eastern edges of the valley, this wine is juicy, soft and layered in cranberry, cherry and vanilla. Expansive and robustly concentrated, it benefits from the addition of 19% Petite Sirah and 5% Carignane, seasoned in cinnamon and black pepper.
