I am not new to the world Trius Red, and seeing it in my neighbourhood LCBO I could not help but to pick up a bottle, to see how this vintage had either changed or stayed the same in comparison to previous years. So, what’s the verdict you ask? The Trius Red 2014 is even better than its predecessor!
Trius Red is made up of Cabernet Franc (55%), Merlot (25% ), Cabernet Sauvignon (20% ), and is very much a Bordeaux-styled wine, but with a twist. While most Bordeaux wines dominate with Cabernet Sauvignon, winemaker, Craig McDonald, chose Cabernet Franc as the dominant varietal and I believe this is what lends to the wine’s delightful complexity on the palate.
On colour, the Trius Red 2014 holds a garnet hue. On the nose, cherry, bell pepper, and chocolate are present. On the mouth, you’ll immediately note this wines refreshing nature as red berries step forward and herbs and light currant fill out the experience.
If you are into that fruit forward, yet substantive wine feel, you will like Trius Red 2014.
This wine retails at the LCBO for $22.95
