Reviews of this wine:
2008 Trius Merlot
submitted by: David Lawrason

It was not a great year for merlot in Niagara but winemaking wizardry by Darryl Brooker has worked small wonders. Very mindful of basic Bordeaux prettied up with lifted raspberry, leafy-tobacco notes, tea and light oak spice. Its mid-weight, fresh and lively with some clove spice on the finish. Moderate tannin. Good length. Chill it a bit.
