Trentadue Old Patch Red 2004 wine review by (PB)
Yet another close out wine for which I paid $8 when it sells for around twice that. This Sonoma blend is a pleasant cherry to black cherry color to the rim. Bouquet is ripe black berries with that rustic touch.
This wine is 76% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Syrah, and 8% Carignane. The Petite syrah works well with this blend. It is full and wild with ripe berry flavors and blueberries, a little espresso and black berry jam with a slightly bitter finish that is pleasant.
This was a very tasty wine worth the price to be sure but even considerably more. Raise a glass.
