Savory and meaty, with plenty of black cherry, raspberry, underbrush and spice, the 2011 Veracity has a great palate that carries pure, vibrant fruit, ripe tannin and an overall elegant, focused feel. Give it another 2-3 years in the cellar and enjoy through 2021. Drink 2015-2021.

(57% grenache, 25% mourvedre and 18% syrah; 25% new French oak and 15.9% alcohol): Brilliant ruby. Powerful aromas of candied black raspberry, blueberry and licorice, with hints of violet and cracked pepper adding complexity. Lush, intensely flavored and silky in texture, offering spicy dark berry and cherry compote flavors enlivened by a suave floral nuance. Showing the dark side of grenache. Finishes sappy and very long, with resonating spiciness, a hint of licorice and velvety, harmonious tannins.
