Hillebrand Trius White 2006

My table full of guests found this well rounded white to be amazing. Even more amazing is that the 2006 is the first release of this wine and received critical acclaim.
Trius White is a careful blend of Pinot Gris, Gewurztraminer, Riesling and unoaked Chardonnay, which offers bold fruit flavours that settle into a dry, clean, refreshing finish.
Trius proves to be a very dependable product line from Hillebrand. More reviews to follow. Many more… ­čÖé

Ernest and Julio Gallo Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

E&J is a house-hold name in California wines, releases this medium body, slightly sweet cabernet sauvignon. I shouldn’t be bias here, but I’m not a fan of sweet cabs, however I wasn’t the only one at the table who wasn’t a fan. I could however see myself gulping down this red in the summer heat when I’m thirsty.
I did however get a surprise I truly wasn’t expecting with this mass produced wine, and that was sediment. At least it was strange to me, anyone else have this happen ?
Tip: balloon glass this wine and decant of yours has sediment too.
