The 2019 Zinfandel Teldeschi Vineyard Frank?s Block from the oldest block on the estate (planted in 1904) is bright punchy and full of character. Vivid and so alive in the glass the 2019 is absolutely compelling right out of the bottle. Red/purplish berry fruit lavender rose petal mint and blood orange build in a creamy beautifully textured Zinfandel-based wine loaded with character. Old-vine Carignane and Alicante Bouschet round out the blend. The Teldeschi is a real standout. (Drink between 2024-2039)v
