International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 102

(a 60/40 blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot) Full ruby color. Smoky aromas of currant and roasted tobacco. Lush, sweet and rich; a huge wine with a silky, utterly mouthfilling texture but also plenty of underlying structure. Finishes with very fine tannins, superb sweetness and lingering notes of black cherry and violet. Built to age but distinctly user-friendly today.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 195

Composed of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot (89% from Sonoma and 11% from Napa), the 1999 is a much younger wine than the 1998 and still has some upside potential. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of graphite, unsmoked high class cigar tobacco, black currants and flowers. Round and generous with some tannins in the finish, it is close to full maturity and should drink well for another 15+ years.

the verite line has always been fantastic. The secondary notes were very noticable in the la joie. It had softened quite a bit but showed no lack of fruit. Smooth tannins, dark cherry notes, and some caramel for the finish. Very good stuff!
