SPECIAL ENCORE ALERT: Agent Red was able to get his hands on just a few more cases of this delicious wine, so please hurry. Here is how we described today’s Ravenswood Winery 2011 Single Vineyard Teldeschi Zinfandel previously:
Today’s Ravenswood Winery 2011 Single Vineyard Teldeschi Zinfandel is a stunning wine that we just couldn’t wait to bring to you. Full of bold and juicy fruit flavors, this is Zin taken to its zenith.
We’ve had a chance to bring you a few successive vintages of Ravenswood’s Single Vineyard Zinfandel in the past, and while we loved those wines, there is something truly special about today’s Zin. Bold without being overpowering, today’s wine is jam packed with flavor but shows an elegance that kept us coming back for more.
Please don’t wait to take the plunge on today’s wine. It won’t last the day!
Deep, dark scarlet in the heart of the glass, with a pretty pink ring around the edge.
Luscious aromas abound in this wine, with deep black cherry and blackberry framed against notes of fresh berry bramble, dried red currant, vanilla bean, dark roasted coffee bean, and a touch of gravelly minerality.
Bold without being overbearing, this is stunner of a Zinfandel. Rich, concentrated notes of black cherry, mulberry, and subtle raspberry are the first flavors to present themselves. These are joined by smoky sandalwood, briar patch, mocha, black peppercorn, a touch of dried rose petal, and a final echo of soft caramel.
Long and lasting, with a luxuriously silken mouthfeel, the finish features soft velvety tannins and juicy fruit flavors that linger and linger.
Herb encrusted pork chops, served with a dollop of balsamic-glazed sweet onions on top.
