With supple fruit and spice, exceptional balance and impressive length, Vérité La Muse is crafted primarily from Merlot. From its inception, every vintage of this special wine - which honors the style of the great wines of Pomerol while celebrating the quality of our world-class fruit grown in Sonoma County - has received outstanding critical acclaim.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 100
"A blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec (52% Chalk Hill, 45% Alexander Mountain Estate and 3% Bennett Valley fruit), the 2008 may have even greater intensity and richness than the 2007. Still young and unformed, it exhibits phenomenal richness and equilibrium as well as a finish that lasts nearly a minute. Its dense plum/purple color is accompanied by notions of black fruits, forest floor, truffles and spring flowers. It should age for 25-30+ years."
