The 2008 Teldeschi is deep purple, nearly black in color. Powerful aromas of black cherries, coffee, caramel, and dark chocolate as well as other sweet dark fruit scents combine to create the classic character of a great Dry Creek Benchland Zinfandel. Rich flavors of sweet cherry liqueur, vanilla and smoke lead to a ripe, dense, gently tannic, long and bright fruit finish.
"As a group, the Ravenwood's 2008 single-vineyard Zinfandels rank among winemaker Joel Peterson's best efforts yet, and, if picking a favorite is not easy, the deep and delicious Teldeschi bottling stands out as our pick of the bunch. Keenly focused on optimally ripe berries and showing the stunning concentration of classic old-vine Zinfandel, it is wonderfully well-balanced for the big wine that it is, and its layered flavors last and last. It will no doubt tempt drinking early, but it has a decade or more of improvement ahead, and it should be cellared away for at least four or five years."
"Glass-staining purple. Powerful scents of boysenberry, cherry liqueur, licorice and dark chocolate. Chewy dark berry compote and bitter cherry flavors are underscored by strong mineral, smoke and licorice qualities. Sweet and gently tannic on the finish but not at all hard. I'd check back on this in another year."

"There's nothing subtle about this Zin. It's rich and ripe in fruit and spices, flooding the mouth with wild, briary blackberry and mulberry flavors. Drink this exuberant young wine with spicy meats. The world's greatest hamburger or cheeseburger would not be out of place."
"An old-fashioned zin with the complexity of mixed blacks (the original blocks were planted from 1913 to 1917), this measures its blackberry fruit against earthy notes of tannin. It's ripe, but not all pruney or porty, just balanced with the peppery sweetness of zin. Decant it for grilled lamb."

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. 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...Read More About Sonoma County
Zinfandel the American - or Californian - grape. Although it's not from America
(Croatia has been named its origin),
it does seem quite at home in the vineyards of California.
During Prohibition, many
Zinfandel vines survived as the high-yielding grape was popular both for home winemaking and communion wine, which is...Read More About Zinfandel
