Trione Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Traditional winemaking practices were employed to make the 2006 Pinot Noir. Such techniques included open top fermentations, hand plunging the cap and three-tofour days of cold soaking before beginning primary fermentation. To accentuate the fruit component, 20% of the grapes were added whole cluster to the bottom of the fermenter. The 2006 Pinot Noir is a blend of clones 115, 667 and 777 from our Russian River Ranch. Each clone brings to the blend its own distinct characteristics. Clone 115 tends to be more fruit-forward with rich color. Clone 667 is earthy with good color and more pronounced ripeness. And clone 777 brings adds a silky texture and the signature Pinot Noir aroma.

For 35 harvests, for 35 Septembers, our family has carefully farmed and managed some of the finest grapes in Sonoma County. With painstaking devotion to the land, three generations – Henry Trione, sons Mark and Vic, and Mark’s daughter Denise – have developed a reputation for producing premium grapes. Our wines are characteristic of the appellations in which they are grown: the cool, slow-ripening flavors of the Russian River Valley and the rich, dark-berry essence of the Alexander Valley. Over these many harvest seasons, we have owned and managed more than 700 acres of the best grapes and soils in these highly respected Sonoma County appellations. We have learned to balance and blend the gifts of nature with state-of-the-art winemaking. Our grapes have been the foundation of many award-winning wines. Now we bring our grapes to you in wines bottled under our own label, Trione Vineyards & Winery. We are passionate about family and tradition, especially traditions that include good food and good wine. Our vineyards, our wines – and our winery – have been a labor of love, the culmination of our family’s long tradition of dedication to Sonoma County. Please share a bottle of wine from the Trione Vineyards and Winery with your family and friends, and taste our commitment to excellence. Salute! Read less

Tasting Notes:

Rich, dark, black cherry dominates the nose and yields to notes of earth and forest floor. This wine has a silky palate and lingering finish. Balanced and age-worthy for three to five years.
