The 2020 Trentadue Estate Zin is the fourth vintage of our new vision for the Trentadue line of wines. This is a truly winemakers blend of all handpicked barrels from Block 305 and 305. All Zin blocks in 2020 were harvested in early September with relatively higher acids and sugar. About 45% 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 cocoa, maple, cinnamon, and slight toast. The mouth feel is solid, with medium to full body and very 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. Cheers!
