Last Nights Wine

Trinitas 2003 Old VinesCuvee


The wine was delicious. My wife and I had tasted it at one of the Friday night tastings at our local wine shop (The Wine Cellar) and picked up about a month ago. The wine is primarily Zinfandel (75%), with Carignane, Petite Sirah, Mataro, Alicante Bouschet and Black Malvoisie rounded out the mix. The wine hits the nose with an amazing array of dark fruit, and rich chocolate right of the bottle. On the tounge it does not dissappoint, wonderful blackberry and blueberry notes with a distinct finish of leather and cinnamon which last for a good while. The only thing I would rate this wine down on is a personal preference of Zinfandels with a nice peppery finish, which I would have expected more so with the addition of Petite Sirah. Overall the wine was very good!! (A-) Price $16.95
