Vérité – Le Désir 2013 – Sonoma

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers complexity. The wine needs to be decanted. It reveals notes of strawberry, redcurrant, forest floor, soil, violet combined with subtle hints of spices, a suble touch of cornflower as well as a subtle touch of sweet spices, Ceylon tea, a very discreet hint of humus and an imperceptible hint of gray pepper (in the background). The mouth is fruity, well-balanced, a bit restrained, charming, slightly tight and offers an outstanding finesse, tension, a slight suavity, an acid frame, a beautiful roundness, a beautiful definition, a fine fleshiness, a beautiful fat, minerality, a nice volume, complexity, a beautiful elegance, a beautiful matter, precision as well as a slight unctuosity. On the palate this wine expresses notes of redcurrant, blackberry and slight notes of wild berries associated with slight touches of crushed Gariguette strawberry, cassis, olive / forest floor as well as discreet touches of toasted oak, almost saline minerality, chocolate and Ceylon tea. Tannins are fine and a bit firm. Good length. There are a very discreet hint of mocha and a very discreet hint of tobacco on the persistence.
