The 2015 Trentadue Zin was made mostly from our Blocks 303 Zinfandel and Block 404 Petite Sirah. All Zin blocks in 2015 were harvested September 8th. Portion of the lots were co- fermented with small amounts of Petite Sirah for better color and additional blueberry aromas. About 30 % 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 predominant dark cherry, blueberry and plums and some of the typical raisins aromas. The fine oak barrel aging brings in subtle aromas of vanilla, brown sugar and slight toast and smokiness. 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.
