Trio Vintners Sangiovese Walla Walla Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The three of us are big believers in Washington State Sangiovese and we were thrilled to find three great vineyards for our 2006 Sangiovese right here in Walla Walla County! We enjoy the way this wine opens up over time displaying leather and more dried cherries along with firm tannins and food-friendly acidity. The finish is surprisingly nutty with a pinch of tobacco. A well structured wine for many occasions.

Not a varietal I typically seek out, Sangiovese by Trio Vintners is a winner - two years in a row! The 2005 vintage was brilliant, and the 2006 is equally delicious. On the nose there is some lovely black plums, with a hint of soil, vanilla,and something green that reminds me of mint. My pal (short for palate) tells me that the flavor profile is similar to the bouquet. Lush notes of vanilla and tart cherries are in balance with the leather and cinnamon components. The acidity is ripping here, and means it's great alone, but would pair graciously with food as well.

I am a huge fan of the wines Trio Vintners is making, and this Sangiovese doesn't disappoint! A wonderful nose of celery and green veggies assaults my senses, leading to flavors of green pepper, vanilla, leather and cherry spice - delicious! The finish has ripping acidity that is balanced by an earthy licorice component and dried cherries. This is a great wine for a terrific value from an up-and-coming producer! Get it while you can!

This Zin has a spectacular nose! The mouthfeel is equally wonderful, with tones of vanilla, spices, and a hint of cherries...This wine is very well balanced and grips your mouth in just the right ways. Would go great with a variety of foods, and guess what? This Zin is from Washington?!? Take that Cali! Great value coming from this young winery in Walla Walla. Buy this wine and be ahead of the curve....or wait, and find out when everyone else does...your choice....
