Vérité Red Bordeaux Blend Sonoma County la Joie 1998

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

A mix of up-front, supple-textured mocha, currant and vanilla, and harder-edged tannins that gang up on the finish, firming, with leather, herb and a chewy, gritty aftertaste. Drink now through 2008. 1,859 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 1998 Verite La Joie 750ml

Tasting Notes:

"There is superb fruit here, and what some term "grip," or structure. The concentration the word implies suggests weight, but it's flavor, not heaviness, that is predominant. The Cabernet Sauvignon fruit is exquisite now, but expect it to become even more velvety over the next decade." - Pierre Seillan, Vigneron
