Winemaker's Notes:

Our 1999 Old Patch Red has aromas of plum, black licorice, black cherry and blackberry. These aromas follow through to flavors of dark plum, black cherry and blueberry with hints of rich vanilla spice. Well integrated and full bodied with soft tannins and jammy, ripe finish. Enjoy with any kind of roasted meat, casual fare or full-flavored pasta dishes.
My Notes:

About Trentadue Winery:

The Trentadues were among the very first to plant new vines in Sonoma County since the days of Prohibition. Italians love their red wines, especially hearty reds like Carignane. In 1962, the Trentadue family began planting new Carignane vines in addition to the 68 acres of old vines already growing on their ranch. Now more than 35 years old, these vines are among the oldest producing Carignane vineyards in America. The family remains steadfastly devoted to this grape, and their wine ranks indisputably among just a handful of top ranked California Carignane.
