Tasting Notes

The 2017 Trentadue Estate Hearts Desire Petite Sirah is the first vintage of our new vision for the Trentadue line of wines. This is a truly a winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels. All 8 barrels of Petite Sirah selection came entirely from Block 405 and it was all fermented in open top fermenters. 
Petite Sirah grapes are very sensitive to dry weather conditions which were exaggerated this year due to our deficit irrigation practices. The 2017 Petite Sirah berries were very small and slightly dehydrated resulting in 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 60% new 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.
