Vérité – La Joie 2013 – Sonoma

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers concentration, a nice depth as well as a beautiful complexity. The wine wins to be decanted. It reveals notes of blackberry and more slightly wild red berries associated with slight notes of soil, cocoa, coffee, wood, a subtle touch of violet as well as discreet touches of Sichuan pepper, a slight touch of truffle and roasting. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a very pretty finesse, a pretty suavity, a beautiful structure, firmness, a slight straight, a very slight austerity as well as a nice slight, silky and slightly velvety. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy blackberry, fleshy / crushed strawberry and slight notes of raspberry, cassis associated with touches of toasted oak, chocolate, slight touches of cornflower as well as a very discreet hint of grove, a subtle hint of crunchy red berries (in the background) and nutmeg. Good length and persistence. There are slight hints of mocha / tonka bean as well as a subtle hint of tobacco, roasting on the persistence.
