Vérité La Joie

On the nose, sweet red and black fruits abound, with red and black plum, very ripe red currant, and tart black cherry. Balancing the fruit are elements of pencil lead, pen ink, powdered mushroom, fresh cut herbs, and menthol, all framed with oak elements of powdered cocoa, toast, clove and nutmeg. A subtle, earthy component of freshly turned topsoil underscores the finish. The mouth-watering vintage will make this red blend a fine compliment to the table, either now, or for many years to come.
