We were fortunate enough to have Robert Whitley
, THE MAN at San Diego Tribune and WineReviewONline review two of our wines!! We love the 2009 vintage and we are excited others are showing the love too!
Trione 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, Block 21, Alexander Valley ($64) — Trione’s Block 21 Cabernet is a superb example of Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from a good vintage. It exhibits richness and density, with layers of blackberry and cassis fruit, a hint of cedar and subtle earthy notes. The wine is well-balanced, with a firm, elegant structure and excellent persistence through the finish. This vintage will benefit from an additional few years of age, but it won’t disappoint in the short term, either. Rating: 92.
Trione 2009 Geyserville Ranch Red Wine, Alexander Valley ($48) — Trione’s Geyserville Ranch Red Wine is a red Bordeaux-style blend that’s heavy on the Cabernet Sauvignon (69 percent) with a big shot of Merlot (12 percent). This vintage is suave and supple on the palate, with inviting red- and black-fruit aromas, a warm hint of toasty oak and a spice note on the back of the palate. It’s delicious and easy to drink now. Rating: 92.
