Wine Review: This slightly opaque and very dark ruby colored Zinfandel opens with a blueberry bouquet with hints of black cherry, cola and oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, acidic and energetic. The flavor profile is an unusual blend of blackberry and cola with hints of oak, pomegranate, and black pepper. The finish is dry and its flavors and acidity stick around for quite a while. The panel suggested pairing this Zin with short ribs. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2011 Teldeschi Vineyard Zinfandel exhibits powerful aromas of black cherries, blackberry, coffee, vanilla, and exotic orange Bergamot spices to create the classic character of a great Dry Creek benchland Zinfandel. The palate is ripe with sweet cherry and licorice and a dense, spicy, mouthwatering finish.
