99 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The 2003 Le Désir is muscular and intense. An intense purple hue in the glass barely fades at the rim, in no way showing the wine’s age. Powerful but supple tannin is buoyed by a streak of fresh acidity, enlivening the wine. The palate shows luscious chocolate-covered Bing cherries, black raspberry coulis, dusty earth, mint, cinnamon, clove and rose petals. After forty to fifty minutes in the decanter the wine begins to blossom aromatically, unleashing opulent fruit and baking spice. After another hour, the fruit recedes slightly, and more savory components emerge.
French for ‘truth’, Vérité reflects our commitment to crafting the most authentic expression of the vineyard. Simply put, but profound in its intent, we are dedicated to producing red wines of style and substance using traditional methods and the finest fruit from mountain vineyards throughout Sonoma County. The Vérité Estate is located in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountain range at the southern tip of Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. Our unique location is just north of the confluence of the Chalk Hill and Knights Valley appellations, an area know for superior soil, climate, and potential to express a strong sense of terroir.
