Vérité Red Bordeaux Blend Sonoma County la Joie 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend comprised primarily of Cabernet Sauvignon that is articulate and powerful, La Joie expresses the richness and depth of a Pauillac-style wine. It begins with a deep, dense purple color, offering up aromas of black currants, coffee, caramel, spicebox, herbs, and smoke. This is a full-bodied, complex and multi-layered wine with vanilla, chocolate, cassis and black fruits on the mid-palate followed by coffee bean flavors and youthful tannins on an exceptionally long finish.

The deep purple-colored 2003 La Joie (75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc) is produced from the same vineyard sources as the La Muse. There is a laser-like focus to this large-scaled, inky/purple-tinged 2003. Notes of graphite, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2003 Verite La Joie 750ml
