The 2019 Trentadue Estate Zin is the third vintage of our new vision for the Trentadue line of wines. This is a truly winemakers blend of 10 handpicked barrels exclusively from Block 305. All Zin blocks in 2019 were harvested the first halve of Octomber. About 50% of the grapes were fermented in small ½ ton open top fermenters for additional complexity of aromas and textures. The wine is bright and lively with concentrated “Zini” aromas of dark cherry, blueberry and plums and some of the typical raisins aromas. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, maple, cinnamon and slight toast and smokiness. The mouth feel is solid, with medium to full body and soft and elegant tannins that accentuate the wine’s long and juicy finish with lively acidity. Zinfandels when balanced are very versatile food pairing wines with broad range and this wine will satisfy your palate with many of your favorite dishes. The wine is delicious now but with some patients and proper aging in 2-5 years it will be even better.
The 2019 season had an interesting mix of conditions to say the least! We had a lot of rain in March and in May, fire in October with evacuations and power outages, other than that the quality was spectacular! The only grapes not harvested before the fire started was our small block of Montepulciano, but we managed to harvest before the fire became more serious. Otherwise, the growing season was relatively mild and long without any heat waves or other surprises. The crop yields were lower than 2018 and the quality was high. Montepulciano, an important grape variety from Central Italy, was planted on our Estate fifteen years ago but it was only 4 rows of vines. We liked it so much that 9 years ago we planted additional 1.5 acres of the certified Italian clone VCR 10. We found out that this variety is late ripening, even later then the Cabernet Sauvignon. There are currently less than 10 tons harvested of this variety in Sonoma County. It is the grower?s variety-with its beautiful and perfect, dark berried clusters, uniformly hanging from the vines. The 2019 is our third year of updated line of more upscale and unique blends under the Trentadue label. This is a truly winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels all made from the young vines. Honoring the Trentadue family heritage and traditions we offer you this classic Italian variety. The wine is deeply colored, with intense blueberry and plum aromas, solid tannins, and firm acidity. Cheers!
The 2018 Trentadue Estate Petite Sirah is the second vintage of our new vision for the Trentadue line of wines. This is a truly winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels. All 8 barrels of this Petite Sirah selection came entirely from Block 405 and it was all fermented in open top fermenters. Block 405 Petite Sirah is located on top of ancient creek with very sandy soils with low fertility causing the vines to produce tiny clusters with small berries. The result is an impressive wine with very dark, opaque color, beautiful nose of concentrated blue berries and blackberries that leads to a full body mouth feel with engagingly soft tannins. The aging in 38% new French and 13 % new American oak barrels brings in delicious smoky, toasty and chocolaty aromas that blend in perfectly with the fruit. Overall, the aromas are of fresh dark fruit and very attractive. Longevity, if stored properly, is one of the virtues of this variety and it will give you the most enjoyment in 5-8 years, or for the brave ones and those who appreciate the beauty of aged wines should wait longer than a decade.
The flavor profile of our Rosato di Sangiovese is amazing ?guava, peach, apricot and watermelon followed by touch of pomegranate and a hint of rose petals. The mouth feel is viscos with perception of sweetness (although the wine is dry), bright acidity, juicy and refreshing. Enjoy this wine well chilled with or without food, it will be equally satisfying. Cheers!
There were times when Carignane was the most planted grape variety in the world. Its origins are from the coastal vineyards of the Mediterranean Sea. In California Carignane was grown statewide and it was the base for many wonderful wines in the early days of winemaking. Today a few rare old vineyards such as Trentadue Estate are still standing and proudly producing delicious wines. This grape is a relatively late ripening variety, and it has a tendency to produce large crop given the opportunity. Only one acre remains of our Old Vines planted back in 1896 and it is well passed its heavy bearing years. The vines are also dry farmed and that contributes to the lower yields as well. Our 2018 Carignane exhibits abundant aromas and flavors of Bing cherries, dark plums and wild berries. There is an intricate complexity in this wine often associated with Old Vines. Serve with roasted meats, savory vegetable dishes and a variety of rustic cheeses. Cheers!
Our 2019 Sangiovese was made mostly from the new Block 602 Brunello Clone. The maturing vines have become more balanced and that affects the flavor profile of our Sangiovese in a very positive way. The weather and the precise timing of irrigations (or lack of) decreased the berry size of the Sangiovese significantly and that contribute to more concentration and intensity in the wine. In addition to the consistent Asian spices, dried cranberries and bright cherries now we see deeper and more complex aromas and flavor of dark stone fruit, blackberries and cassis. The wine is darker and more focused and sophisticated. The oak aging added additional aromas of vanilla, maple, toast and a hint of cinnamon to the already spicy and complex wine. The mouth feel is also typical for Sangiovese-bright acidity, soft tannins, medium body and a medium long but juicy finish. Sangiovese is one of the most food friendly grape varietals and has a special affinity to dishes based on tomatoes and tomato sauces. Cheers!
Our Malbec is one of the youngest blocks on the Estate planted in 2016, located at the Independence lane Exit of HW 101. That section of the property has the best soils of the Estate. Malbec is one of the 5 major Bordeaux varieties in France also widely planted in Argentina and Chile. The variety is known for great color, lower acidity, and low tannin content. 2019 was the first crop from the young vines limited to one cluster per cane. The wine is dark red, showing off intense blue berry and cassis aromas with a hint of mint and earthy minerality. The mouthfeel is very soft and rich for a young wine with low acidity that makes the finish long and lush. Drink now or hold for another 1-3 years. Cheers!
