Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Old Patch Red blend is predominately Zin blended with Petite Sirah and Carignane resulting in very fruity yet complex and full-bodied Rhone-like style wine. The wine has a dark red color with intense black cherry aromas, blueberries, and cherry cola as an immediate impression. With aeration nuances of ripe plums, vanilla and cocoa are showing with a slight dose of oak and toast. On the mouth the wine is fresh and juicy with youthful brightness, finishing long and fruity. This is a wine that will drink well with a variety of foods but it is also very enjoyable on its own.

Blend: 68% Zinfandel, 25% Petite Sirah, 4% Carignane, 3% Syrah

COMMENTARY: Could there be a perfect blended California red wine? Most probably not, but the 2016 Trentadue OPR Old Patch Red is as good as it gets. TASTING NOTES: This wine is rewarding, yet smooth. Its aromas and flavors of ripe berries and its layered texture make it a nice choice with a selection of mixed grilled meats. (Tasted: August 16, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

The Trentadue family arrived in Sonoma County long before the region gained a reputation as the Wine Country. Life-long, hands-on agriculturists, Evelyn and Leo Trentadue contributed significantly to the advancement of their region over the years. In 1959, the Trentadues decided to flee the developers encroaching on their apricot and cherry orchards in Sunnyvale, the area known today around the world as Silicon Valley. To preserve their way of life, these hard-working Italian ranchers purchased 208 acres of land in Sonoma County's then remote Alexander Valley.

For over 55 years, they have been growing premium wine grapes, with some vines dating back to 1886. Their farming practices reflect their commitment to exceptional fruit quality and their stewardship of the land from which it comes. They strive to balance the traditions of the area’s early Italian growers and the ever-evolving viticulture industry. Sustainable agriculture is practiced, as they are stewards of their land and utilize all of the elements available to put the most they can offer into each bottle of wine while retaining the viability of their Estate for generations to come.

Reaching up California's coastline and into its valleys north of San Francisco, the North Coast AVA includes six counties: Marin, Solano, Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake. While Napa and Sonoma enjoy most of the glory, the rest produce no shortage of quality wines in an intriguing and diverse range of styles.

Climbing up the state's rugged coastline, the chilly Marin County, just above the City and most of Sonoma County, as well as Mendocino County on the far north end of the North Coast successfully grow cool-climate varieties like Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and in some spots, Riesling. Inland Lake County, on the other hand, is considerably warmer, and Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc produce some impressive wines with affordable price tags.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
