Old Patch Red

August 15, 2007
After a few days of restaurant wine reviews, I decided it was time for a good old fashioned bottle at home type review! We drank this bottle of 2004 Trentadue Old Patch Red on it's own one (cooler) weekend afternoon. I picked this bottle up on our most recent Sonoma trip for $14.00 The wine had a screw-cap and contained Zinfandel, Carignane, and Petite Sirah.

On the nose were raspberries, spice, nutmeg, and leather. In the mouth I found raspberries and spice. Overall the wine was light and fruity with a bit of a kick at the end.

This is a great value blend and really well done. I would definitely check out the 2005 which I understand is now out!

    Trentadue made one of the best Zins I have ever had, but I can't find it up here anymore. At least I am going to Sonoma in 8 weeks...

    One of our favorite places to visit Joe. Have you got a rough idea of what you want to hit yet? I'm jealous!

    Not sure yet - I'm thinking Schug, Ravenswood, Landmark, Martinelli, Ridge, Seghesio, Trentadue, J. Rochioli. Preliminary thoughts - I need to book a hotel first. New wine glasses?
