Trinitas Cellars Contra Costa County Zinfandel 2002
Zinfandel from Napa Valley, California
Ancient Vines (85-90 years old), from the sandy soil surrounding the little Bay Area town of Oakley in Contra Costa County provide the fruit for this blend of Zinfandel (85%), Petite Sirah (12%) and Mataro. These "old vines" produce a mere 1.5 to 2.5 tons of fruit per acre, showcasing the classic "Oakley" flavors of black fruits, white pepper and chocolate nuances. This Zinfandel is an integration of the best climate, soil types and winemaking, which is an expression of the Trinitas philosophy.
Trinitas Cellars Winery
Dedicated to bringing historical California vineyards and varietals to the forefront of winemaking, Trinitas Cellars specializes in handcrafted Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, and Mataro (Mourvèdre). Winemaker Matt Cline yields to his California heritage in his quest for the perfect wine.
