A blend of 65.65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19.65% Merlot, 9.8% Cabernet Franc, and 4.9% Petit Verdot.
The 2004 La Joie is a dark to opaque ruby color. It has a powerful and youthful nose, very Bordeaux-like with distinct dark currant, blackberry, and cassis aromas, complemented by notes of anise, violets, graphite, and gravel. On the palate, it possesses rich, dense flavors of blackberry and dark plum with hints of new leather, and an interesting combination of earth and minerals. Its finish is long and sueded.
"The 2004 La Joie, which is sourced from the same areas as La Muse, is usually composed of 70% or more Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, and the rest Cabernet Franc. This Pauillac-like effort is more tannic, structured, and masculine, offering hints of forest floor intermixed with smoke, seaweed, black currants, scorched earth, graphite, chocolate, and coffee. Powerful, big, and back-strapping, it is atypical for a 2004 given its structure and brooding character. Cellar it for 2-4 years and consume it over the following 15 or more." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
