Verite La Joie 2000
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.
French for 'truth', Vérité reflects our commitment to crafting the most authentic expression of the vineyard. Simply put, but profound in its intent, we are dedicated to producing red wines of style and substance using traditional methods and the finest fruit from mountain vineyards throughout Sonoma County. The Vérité Estate is located in the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountain range at the southern tip of Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. Our unique location is just north of the confluence of the Chalk Hill and Knights Valley appellations, an area know for superior soil, climate, and potential to express a strong sense of terroir.
