Trust Cellars 2007 Syrah Walla Walla Valley
In the glass, the Trust Cellars 2007 Syrah Walla Walla Valley (14.4%) is a deep, dark purple with reddish tint on the edges. Blackberry and cherry fruit notes are combined with a rich earthiness to the nose.
This Walla Walla Valley syrah is a well balanced wine offering black fruit flavors and food-friendly acidity. I was pleased that the fruit was not over-ripe nor was the oak overplayed. There was a bit of tannin coming off of the small amount of cabernet sauvignon (11%) blended into this wine. Even still, this gave the wine a good structure.
I think the Trust '07 syrah is going to do well with time. It's one I intend to buy more of, for I really like the flavor profile of Walla Walla Valley syrah captured in this wine.
