The other night, I was in the mood for something different…
So I made this…
The Trione 2008 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is open-top fermented, and is a blend of three clones (115, 667, and 777). It’s got that light elegance that I really enjoy in a Russian River Valley Pinot Noir. There are some really tasty mushroom flavors in this wine. The Ceviche Tacos bring out a nice peppery note in the wine. This is a solid 89 point wine at $35.
Quite a bit of the Trione 2008 Russian River Valley Syrah is fermented as whole berry clusters in open top fermenters. The Syrah is hand-plunged up to four times a day. This is not your standard warm-climate Syrah. The cool Russian River Valley reels in the sometimes over-extracted fruit. The palate is full of yummy cherries and earthy tobacco. The Ceviche Tacos highlight a plumminess in the wine. At 90 points, this $32 Syrah is well worth it.
