The 2019 Trentadue Estate Petite Sirah is the 3ed vintage of our new vision for the Trentadue line of wines. This is a truly winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels. All 7 barrels of this Petite Sirah selection came from a field blend of Blocks 400 and 404 and it was all fermented in open top fermenters.
Block 400 Petite Sirah is currently the oldest block on the Estate followed by block 404. Block 400 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 29% new French and 14 % 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.
