A deep, rich, black cherry color in the glass opens with intriguing notes of licorice and white pepper on the nose. Red fruits and spice dance on the palate while licorice and black cherry linger,leading to a very long finish. Discreet tannins and a lively minerality indicate a wine with great aging potential. 2010 was a perfect year for Merlot which is reflected in this wine of balance andelegance. Blend: 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc, 2% Cabernet Sauvignon.
With supple fruit and spice, exceptional balance and impressive length, Vérité La Muse is crafted primarily from Merlot. From its inception, every vintage of this special wine – which honors the style of the great wines of Pomerol while celebrating the quality of our world-class fruit grown in Sonoma County — has received outstanding critical acclaim.
