French for 'joy', La Joie emphasizes Cabernet Sauvignon and represents a Pauillac-style wine. The wine is deep purple in color, spicy and intense in the nose, with density and structure from its Cabernet Sauvignon dominance.
Clearly superb fruit and what some term as "grip" or structure. In our context, this implies weight and flavor and not heaviness or overpowering density. The purity of the fruit of La Joie is exceptional now, but it will become even more velvety, without losing its dark fruit, over the next decade.
