2006 Ravenswood "Teldeschi" Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1044280

95 points and three stars from the Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "20% Petite Sirah; 4% Carignane. The mating of Teldeschi fruit with the Ravenswood hand has yielded superb results across the years, and 2006 is not exception. From its first nose of ripe, concentrated blackberries tinged with sweet spices to the background notes of soils, toast and toffee to its varietally compelling flavors firmed by tough yet fruit-buffered tannins, this one never lets up, but it does want time in the cellar to soften its age-demanding astringency." (January 2009) 91-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: " Deep, saturated red. Zesty cherry and redcurrant aromas display admirable energy and clarity. Tangy, finely etched red berry flavors are medium in weight, with mint and camphor adding vivacity. Becomes sappier and sweeter with air, finishing with excellent lift and snap." (May/June '08) From Wine Spectator: "Aromas of black raspberry and spice lead to zesty, appealing rustic flavors of cherry, licorice and toasty dill. Drink now through 2012. 4,745 cases made." (Feb. 28, 2009)
