Zinfandel is a still a pretty rare beast is Washington state. The grapes for this bottling came from the Wahluke Slope AVA. I found this wine to be a very interesting effort but ultimately a little over extracted, and the whopping 16.2% alcohol shows. Still, there is promise there, and it makes me interested to try some other zins from the state. If you know of some others, leave a comment and let me know.







Trio Vintners Zinfandel 2006

The nose is marked by spice, plum, and tobacco aromas. On the taste, the wine is a bit aggressive on the palate with a lot of fruit up front, a bit too much in my opinion. 76% Zinfandel, 16% Mourvèdre, 7% Sangiovese, 1% Syrah.16.2% alcohol. 80 cases.
