External Reviews for Trio Vintners Zinfandel Wahluke Slope
This Zinfandel is different from CA. It is subtle and complex. It is not jammy like so many CA Zins. I like it for its complexity.
The aromas are unmistakable and, on first swirl we cried out in unison, “Caramelized Walla Walla sweet Onions and Klicker blueberries served on a plank of old-growth Western Red Cedar”! Flavors of sour cherry and dried herbs are equally hard to miss. There is an undercurrent of a wintergreen and clove on the finish. With the addition of Mourvèdre, Sangiovese and Syrah we don’t think anyone will mistake it for a Sonoma Zinfandel but we think we are working with some pretty special fruit here.
