Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.
Hillebrand Winery Trius Red Cabernet Blend 2008 Wine Review
Lovely black plums and berries roll through your senses with this full-bodied red. Rich and smoothly textured with good grip and structure. This is a consistently good producer year after year; one you can trust. 4.4/5 Cabernet Blend food pairings: rare to medium grilled red meats, meat pies.

This is one of my "go to" Ontario wines. I think it's funny that after speaking to several wine makers and wineries many were unhappy with the 2008 year. That being said this is an excellent Red blend and I think for many people the benchmark for what a great Ontario blend should be.
I called this a party wine, because you could bring this to a party and satisfy even the pickiest (snobbiest) of red wine drinkers as you get a perfect matching of Cab Franc, Cab Sauv and Merlot.
