Trentadue Old Patch Red Red Wine, Sonoma County, 2005

Established 1969. For over 30 years our Old Patch Red blend has been consistently one the finest California bargains, highly praised by wine media and consumers. In 2005 the blend is 70% Zin, 20% P. Sirah, 5.5% Carignane and 4.5% Syrah. The grapes are grown mostly in Alexander Valley, Russian River and Dry Creek valleys of Sonoma County. This is a delicious bistro style blend with abundant jammy berry flavors, black cherry and plums. Peppery and spicy. Moderate use of oak completes its juicy and pure mouth feel. Cheers. 14.9% alc by vol.
