Verite la Joie Red Table Wine 2005
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.
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.
