Verite la Joie Red Table Wine 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2005 vintage is a very dark to opaque ruby in color. On the nose, there are polished, Bordeaux-like aromas of black cherry and licorice. It is full-bodied on the palate, very focused and balanced with notes of black cherry and licorice followed by a spicy finish with long, elegant and lingering soft minerality. This wine is drinking beautifully now and will continue to age very gracefully.

Charred, smoky nose of cherry and red currant. Surprisingly smooth on the palate given the smoky nose. Nice acidity remains. Graphite and stone influence. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 9/16/10

Tasting Notes:

"This is a wine of supple fruit, earthen spice, and a seamless melding of finesse and power. Aromas of black cherry and licorice carry through to the palate, followed by a spicy finish with a long, elegant and lingering minerality." - Pierre Seillan, Vigneron
