2015 Vérité "Le Désir" Sonoma County Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1391401 100 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 64% Cabernet Franc, 27% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Malbec, the very deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Le Désir is a little reticent at this very youthful stage, offering glimpses at dusty soil, iron ore, black truffles and salami notes over a core of red currant jelly, black raspberries, blackberries and star anise plus a waft of roses. Medium-bodied, very firm and very elegant yet incredibly intense in the mouth, it delivers loads of red fruit and earthy layers, finishing with great length and depth. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

99 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This has a light touch of toasty oak on the nose and perfectly integrated albeit perceptible tannins on the palate at this stage, a bit like a smooth-textured corset for the dense, focussed and sweet-textured fruit. Despite its youthful intensity, this gorgeous wine impresses with its freshness and subtlety. (YC) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

98 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Love the aromas of black cherries and blackberries, violets and roses. Stunning. Full-bodied, layered and dense with focus and precision. Full tannins, yet compressed and polished. A great Cabernet Franc-based red. Give this four to five years of bottle age before drinking but already beautiful to taste. Inner quote mark (11/2018)

96-98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Le Désir, Vérité's Cabernet Franc-based red, is racy and sumptuous in the glass. Bright floral notes give lift to the red-toned fruit as this silky yet powerful wine shows off its alluring personality. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2018)
