Trinitas Zinfandel Contra Costa County Old Vine 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

A powerful wine expressing the wonderful dusty raspberry and blackberry flavors, which exemplify the Oakley terrior, with additional characteristics of white pepper, coffee and chocolate nuances. Aging in new and used wood has lent this wine a subtle vanilla quality that compliments the explosive fruit notes. Enjoy this wine presently for its effusive black fruit or cellar for 5 to 7 years. This Zinfandel is n integration of the best climate, soil types and winemaking, which is an expression of the Trinitas philosophy. 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 20% new American oak and 10% 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.
