Clinton Vineyards Teldeschi Vineyard Zinfandel 2014
The 2014 Ancient Vine vintage from Teldeschi Vineyard showcases the rich fruit and flavor concentration associated with vines of this age and pedigree. Building on the style we have demonstrated in previous vintages, this wine shows vibrant aromas and fresh flavors of raspberry, blackberry, black cherry, and blueberry, with slight notes of licorice, tar and vanilla. The finish on this wine is not bashful, filled with spice and black pepper that integrate with and complement the wine’s tannins. The wine’s bold flavors and complex, yet balanced structure allows it to pair nicely with a broad range of food styles, including pasta dishes, grilled meats and vegetables, and barbecue.

Wine EnthusiastThis wine is quiet on the nose, but comes to life in its fistful of brawny, thick black fruit and gritty, leathery texture. A touch of black pepper and cinnamon play off each other on the long, resolved finish.
