Mission Codename The Zinfather
Today’s exquisite Ravenswood Zinfandel comes to us from our favorite of all of their vineyards. And, while previous vintages have really impressed us, this 2009 Teldeschi Vineyard Zinfandel really blew us away.
With deep aromatics and beautifully balanced flavors, this wine is pack with character. The plush feel of the wine had our tasting panel taking large gulps - and holding them in our mouths, allowing flavors to permeate the far corners of the palate.
Although the wine is delicious, right on opening, the more you swirl it the more it comes alive. Fine-grained tannins, also enhanced by swirling, give the wine a wonderfully velvety feel.
For a relatively young wine, it drinks just beautifully. It will only get better with age. Today’s special single vineyard Zin, from our dear friends at Ravenswood, gets our very hearty recommendation.
