Winemaker Notes

The mostly old vines that make up the Teldeschi vineyard are Zinfandel, Carignane, and Petite Sirah, a mélange typical of older vineyard plantings in California. The three varieties are fermented separately and blended to taste. The winemaking style brings out the best of the vineyard—power and big flavors. Teldeschi Vineyard is always the highest quality of the Zinfandel vineyards that Ravenswood crushes from the Dry Creek Valley.

Critical Acclaim

CG 96
Connoisseurs' Guide

Regardless of its high Petite Sirah content, this always special bottling delivers, year in and year out, one of the purest expressions of Zinfandel's berry-like fruit that crosses our tasting table. In this vintage, one that has not always been kind to the variety, the wine tops the charts again with a full-bodied, noticeably tannic composition that is lifted by its deep and keenly focused blackberry fruit, and by the way it manages to exude power and inner strength yet is never the least bit overdone.

ST 92
International Wine Cellar

Opaque purple. Potent black and blue fruit aromas are complicated by notes of candied flowers, licorice and Asian spices. Sappy, deeply pitched blackberry and boysenberry flavors of great clarity pick up weight with aeration. Rich but animated zin, with excellent finishing breadth, sweetness and length.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

This is classic Dry Creek Zin—robust, heady, rich in tannins, spicy and insanely flavorful. Explodes with briary, brambly wild berries, mocha, tobacco, anise, dried pine needles and exotic sandalwood notes. Really delicious now, and should age well over the next 10 years, gradually mellowing and shedding fruit and tannins.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Vibrant and zesty, with bright raspberry and cinnamon aromas and focused, briary flavors of cherry, cedar and cracked white pepper. Finishes on a crisp mineral note.

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

Grown on benchland vineyards planted in 1905 and 1910, this wine includes carignane and petite sirah. Its concentrated red fruit flavor is overlain with blueberry and blackberry scents, its meaty and powerful tannins carrying a dark fruit extract that tastes like blueberry skins. This is meaty and ferrous, needing bottle age to settle.
