Vérité – Le Désir 2014 – Sonoma

The nose is elegant, fruity, powerful, aromatic, voluptuous, dynamic and offers a beautiful finesse of the grain as well as freshness. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis, fleshy / juicy plum and small notes of wild strawberry associated with small touches of small wild berries, volcanic minerality, spices as well as discreet hints of flowers, Sichuan pepper, caramelization and very discreet hints of juicy black fruit. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, very slight tight, melodious and offers a beautiful definition, a very slight tension, a beautiful finesse of the grain, a small dynamism, a beautiful suavity, a very slight freshness, a racy minerality as well as a very beautiful finesse of the texture. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, crushed cassis and small notes of crushed raspberry, crushed plum associated with small touches of chocolate / cocoa, caramelization, toasted almond as well as discreet hints of sweet spices, discreet toasted hints, very discreet hints of blond tobacco (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of flowers (violet, blueberry) in the background. Tannins are fine, elegant and very slightly firm. Good length. Beautiful and gourmand persistence. There is a discreet hint of hazelnut on the persistence.
