International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 120

($150; 68% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot and 12% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, licorice and mocha on the nose. Densely packed and juicy, with sharply delineated dark berry and floral flavors. Large-scaled but light on its feet owing to its lovely lift. Serious, gripping wine with a long, bright finish.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 201

A spectacular blend of 64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec, over two-thirds of the fruit from the Alexander Valley Mountain Estate and the balance from Knight's Valley and Bennett Valley, the 2002 La Joie exhibits a sweet, opulent bouquet of charcoal, burning embers, forest floor, blackberries and kirsch. Deep, full-bodied, supple-textured, flamboyant and extroverted, with undeniable purity as well as finesse, it should drink well for another 20-25 years. Interestingly, the pH is a normal 3.61 and the alcohol is only 14.1%.

2002 Verite La Joie Add to Print List RATING: 98 points PRODUCER: Verite visit the producer FROM: North Coast, California, USA VARIETY: Proprietary Blend DRINK: 2007 - 2025 ESTIMATED COST: $115-$210 SOURCE: WA, #157 Feb 2005 Who Has It For Sale Show Other Tastings For This Wine The full-bodied, classically-styled, Bordeaux-like 2002 La Joie's (64.2% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28.5% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, and .3% Malbec) deep ruby/purple color is followed by gorgeous aromas of black truffles, scorched earth, tobacco leaves, blackberry and cassis liqueur, and notions of minerals as well as acacia flowers. This stunning red can be drunk in 2-3 years, or cellared for two decades.

A vegetal nose with hints of chocolate and cola. Heavy forward focused tannins give way to an elegant light touch. Disappointed in the finish, but this is a good wine.
