Hillebrand Trius Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

The Trius cabernet sauvignon is a delicious medium-full bodied, slightly off-dry red that is a great value. Many times we think to ourselves when trying a slightly less expensive wine: “for a couple extra dollars I could have gotten something much better”. This is one of those better wines for an extra tooney.
Winemaker’s Notes:
“Traditional skin contact, subtle French oak integration and full malolactic fermentation produced a wine with a fruit-forward style.”

 

What all means is that the wine is well balanced. You won’t find it too oaky, too tannic or too dry.

Tip: the elegant bottle design makes it a great hostess gift
