Trust Cellars 2007 Syrahs


You can trust Steve Brook's Syrah. His signature style, refined and balanced, is a commitment delivered with every vintage. And 2007 isn't just another vintage - 2007 is already being called one of the greatest vintages in Washington wine history, maybe the greatest.


Steve and Lori Brooks, successful Atlanta based CNN journalists, uprooted themselves for the life of their dreams. "When we sat down and thought about what we had done," Brooks said, "quitting our well-paying jobs, selling our house, taking the kids out of school and moving cross-country to a town where we didn't know anyone... and then on top of that starting a winery... Trust seemed like the perfect description."

Syrah 07

Shipping late May

This is incredible juice. Trust Syrah 07 follows the style of past vintages - it's more like a great Northern Rhone Syrah (think Cornas) than most New World Syrahs. Smoky blackberry, black raspberry and sweet red cherry are woven with ribbons of five-spice and maple. It's a big, richly textured wine, which stays fresh through the long finish with the help of nice acidity, mineral nuances and white pepper accents.


Highly recommended. 100% Syrah from Lewis, Portteus, and Sundance Vineyards. 320 cases made.

Trust Cellars
Walla Walla Syrah 07

Avalon Wine

Shipping late May
Trust's take on Walla Walla Syrah shows the versatility of Steve's winemaking. Fat, lush, and fruit forward, Trust Walla Walla 07 features a broad palate of mixed black and red fruits, bacon fat, mocha, vanilla and black pepper. The finish is an avalanche of sweet fruit. 89% Syrah from Les Collines and Va Piano Vineyards, plus 11% Cabernet Sauvignon from Lewis Vineyard. 214 cases made

Cabernet Sauvignon 06

Avalon Wine

Trust Cabernet Sauvignon 06 is loaded with creamy, black cherry goodness. Layers of dark plum and currant are interwoven with a hint of eucalyptus and cocoa. Superbly balanced and integrated, the Trust 06 opens up nicely with decanting. This is definitely a food lovers wine and would pair well with hearty meats like roasted duck or beef.


80% Cabernet from Champoux, Phinney Hill, and Bacchus Vineyards, plus 20% Merlot from Conner Lee Vineyard. Aged in 50% new French oak.

Riesling 08

Avalon Wine

Shipping late May
Scents of honeyed fruit and flowers. Flavors of sweet white peach morph into refreshing mineral notes and crisp apple, finishing with subtle floral notes, apricot and a sense of uplifting minerals and spring water. German in style, off dry, made from Weinbau and Dionysus Vineyards fruit. A lovely wine.

Rose of Cabernet Franc 08

Shipping late May
100% Cabernet Franc. Seattle Times says: "Round, ripe and showing mixed cherry and apple fruit flavors, it's soft and accessible, with beautiful fruit and some delicate spice notes of cinnamon and sandalwood."
