Ontario Reviews

Hillebrand 2010 Trius Cabernet Sauvignon
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I was to try this wine. Back in the late summer of 2010 I asked a former Ontario Grape King what grape he was excited about for the upcoming harvest. Without too much pause he said, “without a doubt Cabernet Sauvignon.” Cabernet Sauvignon is a tough grape to grow and get right in our cool climate region – so when a year like 2010 comes around you’d better believe you look into making this varietal – and this Trius single variety does not disappoint. A nose of chocolate, strawberry and raspberry with the added bonus of vanilla, blueberry and a toastiness are also present. The palate is just now hitting its juicy phase with red berries taking charge along with blueberry, strawberry, spice and tannins that are starting to settle … long and lovely finish with a minimum of a decade of ageing ahead of it. Price: $14.95 – Rating: **** ½
