Trinitas Petite Sirah Lodi Old Vine 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

An impenetrable black ruby color foretells the concentration of this monster wine. Effusive blue fruits, including blackberries, blueberries and boysenberries are framed by an earthly elegance that dominates the nose of this wine. Big ripe tannins balance the richness without being astringent resulting in a mouth feel that is almost permanent. Easily able to age for a minimum of 10 years, enjoy this wine with rack of lamb, duck and beef. Winemaking: A pre-fermentation cold soak with traditional pump-over cap management preserved the unique fruit qualities of this wine. After malolactic occurred in neutral wood, an addition of 15% new American oak and 15% new French oak were used to enhance the spice flavor components and to frame the fruit with added structure in the mid-palate. During 14 months of aging, this wine was racked once and only lightly filtered before bottling.
