Great Value

Exceptionally spicy from start to finish, the David Clinton Zinfandel “Teldeschi” comes from 130 year old vines on the Dry Creek Valley’s east side. Amaro, black licorice, black pepper and musk permeate the raspberry/cherry liqueur, wild strawberry and pomegranate fruitiness. Such spice, from black pepper to Moroccan spices to brown pie spices. Juicy, healthy and integrated tannins, refreshing acidity. So well put together. Love this Zin.  Aged in previously used American oak barrels, 15.2% alcohol.

They currently make two single vineyard, Dry Creek Valley Zinfandels, this “Teldeschi” with vines up to 130 years of age, and “Mounts,”  45 year old vines.
