2001 Petite Sirah, Dry Creek Valley.

The intensity of the old vine fruit shows in the deep dark color and powerful berry nose. The solidly structured mid-palate is dominated by massive fruit layered over a solid tannic base. The wine was bottle-aged for seven years before release, giving it soft, supple tannins and a smooth and lengthy finish. 13.8% Alcohol. Retail $36/00 bottle, Wine Club $27.00.


2002 Petite Sirah, Lot 2, Dry Creek Valley.
This wine reveals the character and complexity derived from the Teldeschi Home Ranch benchland site. The intense dark color immediately indicates Petite Sirah in the glass.

Still fresh and slightly tight at ten years old, this wine should continue to evolve and give pleasure for four to seven more. This is our most massive Petite Sirah to date at 15.3% Alcohol. Retail $40.00/bottle, Wine Club $28.00.



OTHER REDS


2005 Syrah, Ramazzotti Vineyard, Alexander Valley.
Although the king of Rhone varietals for 2000 years, Syrah has only recently gained a foothold in California, and the Alexander Valley climate and soil brings out the best in this grape.

Retail $36.00/bottle, Wine Club $27.00.


2005 Cabernet Sauvignon, Page Vineyard, Alexander Valley.

2005 Cabernet Franc, Pedroni Vineyard, Dry Creek Valley.
The 2005 crop was the best fruit we’ve ever acquired from Bob Pedroni. The perfect, tight dark blue-purple clusters yielded a delicious wine with flavors too complex to pin down. Wild blueberry and blackberry with exotic, spicy overtones. These are offset by layers of mildly grained tannins that only hint at how well this wine will age. Drink now through 2015 and beyond! 146 cases produced. 15.6% Alcohol. Retail $36.00/bottle, Wine Club $27.00.


2006 Cabernet Sauvignon, Page Vineyard, Alexander Valley.

2010 Valdiguie, Dry Creek Valley.
The Teldeschi’s have been growing Valdiguie on their Estate Benchland since the late 70’s. Back then it was known as Napa Gamay. It was Frank Teldeschi’s second biggest component that he would blend into his Zinfandel based blend. He liked how it brightened up the fruit and added red berry like components to the blend. Always a blender in Dan’s Zinfandel, Terranova and Petite Sirah, in 2010 he decided to make it as a varietal and bottle it as Valdiguie. It has a bright red hue, an explosion of jammy fruit, and just the right amount of tannin and acidity to pair beautifully with either haute cuisine in a fine restaurant or home-cooked pasta at your own kitchen table. 100 cases produced. 13.8% Alcohol. Retail $30.00/bottle, Wine Club $21.00.

2001 Terranova, Dry Creek Valley.
The ruby color in the glass is still bright for a wine of its age. The nose displays the panoply of berry flavors one expects from the benchland Teldeschi fruit.

Retail $40.00/bottle, Wine Club $24.00.


2003 Terranova, Dry Creek Valley.
Dark, dark purple color foreshadows that the heft of this vintage’s Terranova will rival one of Dan’s Reserve Zinfandels.

Drink now or in 5 years for the ultimate Teldeschi experience. 373 cases produced. 14.8% Alcohol. Retail $40.00/bottle, Wine Club $24.00.
