Teldeschi

Ravenswood Teldeschi Zinfandel 2014

Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma County, California, United States
3 days ago

Jon scored this wine: 92/100

A beautiful Cali Zin, with gorgeous fruit from Dry Creek Valley. The 2014 vintage is showing well balanced, with big mouthwatering acidity, densely concentrated fruit, medium plus chewy tannins, dry and lip smacking. Blueberry, ripe raspberry, blackberry with wet stone minerality on the palate. The big 15.1% alcohol is supported by the other big factors. Pairs well with TexMex. Tasted Dec 2018. 92 points. #ravenswood #zinfandel
