2008 Verite, La Joie, Sonoma County
RP99
Wine Maker’s Notes for ’La Joie’ 2008 vintage:

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 minerality. This is a sophisticated wine with an elegant bouquet and powerful, grippy tannins that ends in a long, silky finish.

2008 Verite, La Muse, Sonoma County
RP100
Wine Maker’s Notes for 'La Muse' 2008 vintage:

“A deeply hued magenta core and a bouquet of spices, violet, lilac and clove. Blueberries, black plums and the bright expression of red fruit – wild strawberries, fresh raspberries – unfold in harmony with sophisticated herbal tones and an expansive, velvety mouth-feel. Couched in the elegance of custom-sourced, fully-traceable oak and our signature toasting profiles, the wine offers refined tannins and a lasting finish that will age beautifully for decades to come.” – February 2018

2022 Ridge, Three Valleys, Sonoma County
Made by carefully combining parcels from different Sonoma vineyards, then ageing for 12 months in the barrel. Three Valleys represents the blending of vineyards at its finest.
This exceptional red is composed of a harmonious mix of Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Carignane and Mataro. Zinfandel establishes the wine’s varietal character whilst the Petite Sirah brings spice, depth of colour and tannins.
The result is complex, well-balanced, with a deep ruby colour and inviting bouquet of fruits and spices. Enjoyable now, this wine will continue to develop over the next five years.
The 2022 Vintage was marked by record-setting heat, which reduced yields and resulted in some powerful, concentrated wines, which are definitely worth seeking out.
