Ravenswood Winery-Zinfandel-Teldeschi Vineyard-Dry Creek Valley-California-2009-14.8%- Alcohol-$23.51-A nose of dark cherry, dark purple in the core of the glass, lightening to a bit of a garnet red on the edges.   This single vineyard Zin is medium to full bodied, with a long finish.   The alcohol comes through, but not too hot.   The wine is robust and full-flavored, with a touch of dark fruit, but more obviously, a smoky, meaty element.              WS-86              WE-90             CR-88              Good with ribs, chicken, pasta.
