Hillebrand Trius Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Date January 16, 2009 | Chuck | Cabernet Sauvignon & Canada & Red Wine

Once again my favourite brand doesn't disappoint! The 2007 vintage will surely be a crowd pleaser due to it's well balanced palate and nicely integrated tannins.
This cab has an excellent nose but a bit more depth and structure on the palate and this would be an incredible bottle. Watch for subtle hints of cedar and spice on the finish.
Tip: tulip glass

Hillebrand Trius Cabernet Franc 2004

Date December 20, 2008 | Chuck | Cabernet Franc & Canada & Red Wine

The Trius line is, in my opinion, the most consistent line of products in the general list.  The cab franc being no different, but it is VERY different than your usual dull and overly herbaceous cab francs.
Watch for a hint of clove in the finish.
Tip: tulip glass
At a Glance
Taste blackberries, sweet oak, plum
Smell currant, smoky oak, sweet jam
Food beef, mushroom dishes
Sweetness dry
