Verite la Joie California 1998

Average Rating Rate It Add
Verite Winery:
The Vérité Estate is located in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountain range at the southern tip of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. Vérité's unique location, shared by only one other winery, is just north of the confluence of the Chalk Hill and Knights Valley appellations.

Tasting Notes:

"What one notices first is the conjunction of concentrated black-cherry Merlot fruit and a texture somewhere between satin and velvet. What one notices last is the broad finish that lingers. The 1998 Verite can be enjoyed now or cellared for even greater drinking pleasure." - Pierre Seillan, Vigneron

Closure: Cork

Wine Specs:

Total Acidity: 5.8 grams per liter
