Vérité Le Désir 2013

Sonoma County, California, United StatesThe 2013 Désir is a blend of 62/22/11/5/ cabernet franc, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, malbec aged 15 months in 100 percent new French oak. Perhaps the spiciest, it opens with a whiff an alluring hint of white pepper. The attack is as powerful and elegant as it gets, clearly mimicking the great wines of Saint Emilion. With so much finesse already evident you could drink this now although I would say wait a decade. The attack is round, the tannins chalky and soft with fine black tea, licorice, orange with a stony mineral backend. Impressive style and seemingly set to age for decades. Try now with Bistecca Fiorentina.Tasted: 07 July 2017Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 499.99 BCLS AB 400.00 private wine shops Producer: Vérité EstateDistributors: Summit Fine Wines
