2013 Vérité Proprietary Red Sonoma County

(0) No Reviews yet


About as soft and sumptuous as Sonoma County can get, this is a Merlot blend for the record books. Parker describes A blend of 89% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec at 14.3% alcohol, the wine is amazingly like a great vintage of Petrus, with mulberry, black cherry, licorice, truffle and unctuous, thick, juicy fruit all present in this full-bodied masterpiece. The tannins are still present. The wine has purity and savory presence and is remarkable. The finish goes on for well past a minute. This wine would probably benefit from 5-8 years of bottle age and last 40-50 years." "

Details

“Vérité” is the French word for “truth” and, in truth, Vérité makes three of California’s finest Bordeaux-style reds. Located in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains at the southern tip of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley, Vérité draws from three superb Sonoma mountain vineyards, one each in Alexander Valley, Bennett Valley and Knights Valley. Winemaker Pierre Seillan, who spent more than two decades honing his craft in Bordeaux before coming to California in 1997, selects fruit from choice ‘micro-crus’ (small sections of a vineyard that best express its character) within these sites to craft Vérité’s acclaimed reds. “La Muse” is a Pomerol-style blend of Merlot and Cabernet Franc, “La Joie” a Pauillac-inspired wine made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon, and “Le Désir” a Cabernet Franc-Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon blend modeled on the wines St. Emilion. All three consistently earn eye-popping scores from Robert Parker and other leading wine critics, confirming the old adage that “the truth will win out.”
