Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Trius 2014 is a refined and delicious wine from the beautiful Niagara wine region. The wine exposes a bouquet of black plum, fig, black pepper, bay leaf, leather, baking spice, smoke and vanilla. Complex and structured, this Meritage blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot provides a full body, polished tannins and supple acidity. The finish lingers into notes of dried cherry, plum, tobacco leaf, bay leaf, leather, spice and cedar. Enjoy!
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Trius' Red is a Bordeaux blend from Ontario's Niagara on the Lake. Dark fruit, cedar, herbs, and underbrush on the nose and palate. Expressive, and finely textured, this is a wine made for enjoying fine meals. Think grilled hanger steak with truffle fries. Tasted March 2017. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful. Tart and tight. Black currant, ripe blackberry and savoury. Medium - full bodied red blend from a Niagara on the Lake legend. Paired exceptionally well with a medium-rare roast prime rib and roasted veggies. Tasted 2014 vintage in March 2017. 90 points. BespokeTastings

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
