Food Pairings for Trentadue Winery Petite Sirah Alexander Valley
Trentadue's concoction is a lovely dark purple color, with fantastic legs. Mine was slightly cloudy and there was some residual chunkage where the wine crept up and ate a bit of the cork. There is a wonderful bouquet of cherry and blackberry along with some earthy pepper and clove scents. I would also say there is a touch of lavender in the nose. All in all, a delightful aroma. The taste is very dry, but there is a fresh exotic breezy kind of quality, like I'm tasting the sea – in a good way. It is chocolatey. Rich. There is a very woody, rooty, earthy quality. But it is nicely balanced with dark red fruits, some plum flavors and it fills the mouth and excites the palate.
This is a big, powerful wine with predominant aromas of ripe plums, blackberry and the typical, for the variety, blueberry. The second layer brings out graphite and smoky-tarry nuances of coffee and molasses. The mouth feel is definitely of a full bodied wine with massive but surprisingly civilized tannins leading to a long and unforgettable finish. Longevity is guaranteed with this variety for the next 10-15 years...or more! www.vinopedia.com
Love the Petite! Not many people in the area make a nice Petite and I really enjoy this one.
Trentadue's petite sirah is a fantastic wine. A great buy for the money. It was recommended to us by a sommelier and I went home that night and bought a case. I'm on my second case now. Very consistent.
