Vérité La Joie Sonoma Valley 2008
Type: Red wine
Varietals: Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc)
Origin: Sonoma County, California
Tasting notes: Ruby red shades reveal a perfect blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. A symphony of cassis, black raspberry and black cherry with a hint of red fruit moves across the palate; aromas of mint, sage, tobacco box and graphite are elevated in La Joie's signature granitic mineralogy. This is a sophisticated wine with an elegant bouquet and powerful, grippy tannins that ends in a long, silky finish.
Critical acclaim: 99pts - Robert Parker
