Winemaker Notes:  There's superb fruit here, and what some term "grip" or structure. In our context, this implies weight and flavor and not heaviness or overpowering density. The purity of the fruit of Verite La Joie is hard to resist now, but it will become even more velvety, without losing its dark fruit, during the next decade.  59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 41% Merlot

Composed of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon and 41% Merlot (89% from Sonoma and 11% from Napa), the 1999 is a much younger wine than the 1998 and still has some upside potential. A deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of graphite, unsmoked high class cigar tobacco, black currants and flowers. Round and generous with some tannins in the finish, it is close to full maturity and should drink well for another 15+ years. -- Rated 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
