Trione with Ceviche Tacos

The other night, I was in the mood for something different…

So I made this…

Ceviche Tacos with Swai, Mango, Avocado, Chiles, and Sriracha

I had some more Tasting Room samples from Trione so I cracked them open to see what was doing.

Trione 2008 Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

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.

Trione 2008 Russian River Valley Syrah

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.

Stay Rad,

Jeff
