2017 Petite Sirah, Teldeschi Vineyard
Nestled in the heart of Dry Creek Valley, Ray Teldeschi's meticulous vineyard grows highly sought after grapes. His reputation as a remarkable farmer shows in the fruit quality. The vineyard follows an easterly slope up to the bench land, one level above the valley floor, with volcanic soil that contributes a signature spice to much of Ray's fruit. Southern exposure guarantees plenty of sunlight and the valley's warm days followed by cool nights result in perfect conditions for red varietals such as Petite Sirah.
Mediterranean fragrances of Kalamata olive and marigold, with hints of blueberry and spicy red pepper. Driven by its vintage and AVA, our take on this bold Dry Creek varietal progresses from silk to suede to velvet, with more milk chocolate than cacao on the palate.
