Winemaker's Notes

The mostly old vines that make up our Teldeschi are Zinfandel, Carignane and Petite Sirah, a melange typical of older vineyard plantings in California. The three varieties are fermented separately and blended to taste. Native yeast fermentation, small open-top fermenters, manual punching down of the cap, minimal processing and aging in small French oak cooperage all contribute to a style that brings out the best of the vineyard, power and big flavors.This 2003 Teldeschi Zinfandel has huge, jammy, inky, slightly porty aromas infused with black pepper, vanilla and hints of tar, smoke and coffee blend. A very broad, intense wine with huge fruit, lots of those luscious Dry Creek bing cherry and sweet plum characters. Another fabulous Dry Creek benchland zinfandel.

But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
