Trinitas 2005 Petite Sirah Highway 88

Trinitas sources grapes from Highway 88 Ranch vineyard on the very southeast side of Lodi for their deep, intensely flavored Old Vine Petite Sirahs. With vines aging over 50 years old, this unique vineyard site produces some of the highest quality Petite Sirah in California. The Petite Sirahs from Trinitas Cellars have consistently garnered 90 point scores since 2003, and the 2005 vintage has also earned a 90 Point score from Wine Spectator to add to the growing collection. On the palate, ripe fruit flavors veer toward the jammy, spicy side, with wonderful red fruit, cherry, raspberry and currant flavors. The intensity and persistence of the flavors are supported by the firmly tannic structure, which will allow this Petite Sirah to age gracefully over time. [+]
