The Trinitas 2005 Old Vine Cuvée is a classic California old world blend of Mataro, Zinfandel, Carignane, Petite Sirah, and Alicante Bouschet from select vineyards around the little town of Oakley in the northeast corner of Contra Costa County. These stunning vineyards are the living heritage from early Italian and Portuguese farmers who originally settled in the area. A traditional ‘old world’ styled achievement, the 2005 Old Vine Cuvée was awarded a Double Gold Medal from the National Women’s Wine Competition as well as a Gold Medal from the Hilton Head Fine Wine Competition. Carefully constructed to match the individual strengths of each varietal, the Old Vine Cuvée is reminiscent of traditional southern Rhône blends. This wine is fruit driven with notes of blackberries and blueberries with hints of vanilla. Full bodied, yet elegant, the Cuvée is vibrant with multiple layers of flavors and aromas leaving one’s palate lingering for more. Try pairing the Trinitas 2005 Old Vine Cuvée with barbequed pork, ribs, and pot roast. 37% Mataro, 24% Zinfandel, 18% Carignane, 13% Petite Sirah, 8% Alicante Bouschet. Enjoy now until 2015.
