(89% merlot and 11% cabernet sauvignon) Saturated medium ruby. Smoky aromas of redcurrant, Cuban tobacco and game. Dense, concentrated and silky; suggests almost roasted ripeness yet also possesses excellent verve and lift. This has lovely fruit. Finishes with dusty tannins and excellent length.

A blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon (84% of the fruit from Sonoma and 16% from Napa), the 1999 is soft enough to be considered fully mature. Sweet aromas of espresso roast, plum sauce, black currants and forest floor are followed by a delicious, chewy, complex wine that should drink well for another 12-14 years.

Strong effort by Verite. Definitely at peak or right past it. Nose of old, musty clothing and light hints of cinnamon. Really cool nose. Lots of graphite and depth to this wine. Definitely tipping the hat strongly to the Bordeauxs even for a Sonoma cab. Well done!
