2010 Vérité "La Muse" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend (Previously $330)

SKU #1191818 95 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (14.3% alcohol; 84% merlot, 13% cabernet franc and 3% cabernet sauvignon): Brilliant medium ruby. Inviting aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice, cocoa powder, brown spices and black truffle. Dense and sweet, showing an almost liqueur-like ripeness to the blackberry and mineral flavors. The wine's slightly high-toned quality is leavened by its serious spine. Finishes with outstanding persistence. (ST)  (5/2014)

95 points Vinous

 An exotic, nuanced beauty, the 2010 La Muse offers up an exotic concoction of white truffle, cassis, cloves. Captivating and totally beguiling, the 2010 takes over all of the senses and never lets up. A rush of blue and black-hued fruit flows through to the enveloping, deeply resonant finish. The 2010 shuts down in the glass, so it is best left alone in bottle for a number of years. What a gorgeous wine this is, especially if readers can be patient. (AG)  (2/2014)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2010 La Muse (14.4% alcohol) is a blend of 84% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. One of the more soft, opulent, precocious wines I have tasted from this estate, it exhibits abundant notes of spicy oak, plum, Asian soy, new saddle leather, barrique, black cherries and black currants. Round and generous with considerable fat and succulence, it can be drunk in 2-3 years or cellared for 15-20. Drink through 2035. (RP)  (12/2013)
