Wine Review: 2008 Trinitas Zinfandel Old Vine
Very nice presentation with a deep garnet color and legs that go forever! Ripe strawberry nose with a hint of oak and chocolate. On the palate, lush dark berry, blackberry, and a hint of dark chocolate. Quite a mouthful with a good lively acidity. The finish was a bit short but very smooth and lush. We think this is a very good wine, more elegant than most Red Zinfandels, but lacks some of the zestiness we like. Overall, an 86 on our SiNoTas scale. Looking forward to the next vintage! Until then, we’re WineSplashing!
