It's actually the 2008 that we have and I think this is a 90. I great wine, dark and red berries and a mild peppery finish. Drank April 2010.
Allowed it to decant for 2hrs. Quite a change over the course of two hours. Green/woodsy nose for the first hour, less pronounced later. Mild depth and richness, very tannic - it IS in the Bordeaux style. Everyone's advice is to cellar this wine. Will try again in a few years.
I've had several opportunities to try this wine and I desperately want to like it. But to be very honest, it's a little too green and falls short even after a couple of years in the cellar. The hard to find '07 Trius 'Grand Red' on the other hand is absolutely stunning... Why I ask should the two wines be worlds apart? The answer, in my opinion, and since we are attempting to duplicate Bordeaux here, is that this is Trius' second label and the Grand Red is their Premier Grand Cru. (Northof9finewine, April 2011)
