Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Excellent price point on this Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of currant, blueberry, dark spices, tobacco and smoke. Full bodied with soft tannins, bright, mouthwatering acidity and lots of ripe, black fruit on the palate. Acidity provides some nice balance and the finish is spicy and smoky. Enjoy with burgers or ribs.
Trius Distinction 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is a rich and smooth Cabernet from the Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region. Dry, full-bodied and concentrated on the palate with black currant, blueberry, dark spices, smoky, spicy flavours balanced with mouth-watering acidity. Tannins are structured and grippy. Enjoy with burgers or ribs from the grill. - Community Wine Reviews
