(2004 vintage)

I can't yet speak of the '07 but I just cracked open a 2004 Teldeschi that I've had in the cellar for a few few years.

It turned out to be perhaps the best Zinfandel I've ever had.

I open a 2004 Ravenswood Barricia a couple of years ago and thought it was good, if not quite worth the price.

This was a much better wine. Great nose of dark, stewed berries, anise, pepper and mint.

Full bodied. Rich, complex palate: dark berries, baking spice, black pepper, and mint. Lots of sediment accumulated in the bottle but plenty of tannin left. Great finish. Terrific wine.
