Trentadue Old Patch Red 2016
|Region||California, Sonoma County, Alexander Valley|
The 2015 Old Patch Red blend#43 is predominately Zin blended with Petite Sirah and Carignane resulting in very fruity, yet complex and full bodied Rhone- like style wine. The wine has dark red color with intense black cherry aromas, blueberries and cherry cola as an immediate impression. With aeration, nuances of ripe plums, vanilla and cocoa are showing with a slight dose of oak and toast. On the mouth the wine is fresh and juicy with youthful brightness, finishing long and fruity. This is a wine that will drink well with variety of foods but it is also very enjoyable on its own. Our 2015 OPR Lot# 43 is delicious now but it will reward your patience with 2-3 years of aging.
This is a pleasant, fruity, medium-bodied wine that should be a crowd pleaser. Plenty of cherry and berry flavors accompany very light tannins and a smooth texture.
