Trio Vintners Wines

Happy Wine Wednesday and here are a couple wonderful wines created by Karen LaBonte, Winemaker and Owner of Trio Vintners out of Walla Walla, Washington.

2010 Trio Vintners Flashpoint Sangiovese Reserve, Yakima Valley ~ This twist on the “King of Tuscan” Sangiovese Grosso clone offers a refined nose of baking chocolate, sweet cedar, white pepper, wild blackberries and slightly funky earth. With a dry and tantalizing palate of fresh herbs, faint mint and silky, smooth tannins that will only evolve. This wine is massive and perfect for the slow cooked pot roast or rib eye off the grill.

2010 Trio Vintners Far Away Vineyard Grenache, Yakima Valley ~ With a sound nose of perfume, heavy oak and black pepper. This medium bodied red offers rich flavors of black cherry, blackberry and dense plum across the palate. Great beef wine!

2011 Trio Vintners Heart of the Hill Vineyard, Red Mountain, Carmenere ~ Big and thick with avant garde attributes of semi wet wood, jalapeno peppers, dirt, baking cocoa, dark cherry and a vanilla extract finish to boot; This wine as unorthodox as it is, is one of my favorite Carmeneres of all time.
