2009 Verite - La Joie Proprietary Red (750ml)


Quantity in Stock: 1

Wine Advocate: 96 Points

The 2009 La Joie (14.5% natural alcohol, and a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot and Malbec) boasts an opaque purple color along with abundant notes of wood spice, barbecued meat, new saddle leather, creme de cassis and forest floor. Rich, full-bodied and powerful with moderately high tannins, it needs to be forgotten for 5-7 years, and drunk over the following 25-30 years.-RP

Wine Spectator: 88 Points

Dense and chewy, this presents a rugged mix of textures, featuring flavors of crushed rock and dried berry, with a dash of cream and bitter mocha woven in. Finishes with drying, extracted tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Best from 2014 through 2024. 1,000 cases made.?-- JL (11/2013)
