Vérité Red Bordeaux Blend Sonoma County 1998

Member Review by VegasOenophile:

Slight TCA on the nose. Unfortunate. Was looking forward to this one. Aside form that, red currant, cherry and a little stony. On the palate, cranberry and cab franc-like red fruit. Thin, somewhat lacking depth. It's like it being "corked" pulled all the body and depth and complexity out of the wine. It was thin and flimsy. Seemed like it was good had it not been victim of TCA. 88 pts.

Dark, rich and chocolaty, with black cherry and blackberry fruit that's deep and concentrated. Gains complexity with mineral, cedar, coffee and tarry notes, turning dry and tannic. Best from 2002 through 2010. 1,956 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1998 Verite 750ml
