Vérité Red Bordeaux Blend Sonoma County la Joie 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

There's superb fruit here, and what some term "grip," or structure. In our context, this implies weight and flavor, not heaviness or overpowering density. The purity of the fruit is hard to resist now, but it will become even more velvety, without losing its dark fruit, during the next decade.

94 Points "The 1999 La Joie (59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot) exhibits sumptuous aromas of sweet saddle leather, cigar smoke, chocolaty black currants, and blackberries. It is sweet, rich, full-bodied, complex, and tastes like a Bordeaux on steroids. This is an enormously endowed, classic, distinctive cuvee that must be tasted to be believed. It represents a synthesis between France's Medoc and Northern California's ripe fruit." Wine Advocate, #142 Aug 2002, Robert Parker
