I would say there is a strong and persistent blueberry tone, specifically freshly picked wild blueberry grown in a jack pine forest. It’s mild and dry - agree with Odedi it’s a young Amarone- if a bit more medium bodied. Tobacco, moist rock, pomegranate, clove spice. Great adventure wine for those seeking complexity. — 14 days ago
Strong leather work glove flavour mixed with mistletoe, or whatever that Christmas flavour/smell that’s in those red foamy soaps… you know what I mean? Anyway…
There’s also an almost menthol effect like fresh mint that’s cooling to the tongue, and it finishes with the bite of black pepper. — 3 months ago
Fruity, great start but tends to level off over time to a more mellow almost nonexistent flavour. Consumed with Italian pasta, Italian pasta sauce, while watching Stanley Tucci’s “Searching for Italy” - travel to Italy, from your couch! — 19 days ago
Nose: Smells like a stuffy change room at a chlorinated public pool.
First impression: Not sweet, much better than expected. Plummy, as expected. Subtle to flabby (tannin) expectations.
Tasting: Is there alcohol in this? Dark cherry, to goji berry or light cranberry? Cedar or dry pine. Smooth. Seamless.
Did Trius end up being a 7.8-rated (in this app) ‘travesty’ ? No.

Very easy drinking. So much so hard to nail down what really stands out. You get the usual ‘concentrated grape juice’ - I could taste a bit of grape stem even. But, like I said, it’s not really about the flavour profile; get it for being a really easy, not intimidating or overly bold cab sauv. — 3 months ago
Blend from Cotes-du-Rhone.
Owing to terroir
A haiku for this review^
Cranberry, tartness, minerality/gravel or dry sand.
Or wait, let me try another one:
Falling maple leaves…
Cranberries and dark cherries,
Gravel and dry sand. — 4 months ago
