Vérité La Muse 2000

Sonoma County, California, United StatesVérité La Muse (Vérité in the 1998 vintage) was inspired by the ideal of marrying the classic approach of the French vigneron to the exquisite potential of Sonoma and Napa County fruit. Look for an open vanilla, peppery nose streaked with cherry jam and spicy, and licorice aromas. It's rich with big concentration yet smooth and round tannins balance of the acidity perfectly. Coffee, vanilla, spicy, orange rind, peppery, plum jam flavours finish with smooth textures and a distinctive cardamom clove finish. Suave and drinkable at a young age but will improve over the next 3 to 7 years. A blend of 87/9/2/2 merlot/cabernet franc/cabernet sauvignon/malbec all from Sonoma Mountain.
