Teldeschi Vineyard Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel, 2017

Produced by [ess·eff] wines

Our 2017 Teldeschi Vineyard Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley was made from fruit Ray Teldeschi expertly grew in perhaps the best region to grow the varietal. An exceptional growing season yielding a richly concentrated fruit that translates into a substantial yet elegant wine with deep color and should age well for at least a decade.
