2016 CENYTH SONOMA RED
94 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2016 Cenyth Red Wine Blend is blended of 50% Cabernet Franc, 33% Merlot and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon. Deep garnet-purple colored, it opens with expressive baking spices, fragrant earth and vibrant red and black currant scents with touches of underbrush, pencil shavings and tar with a waft of charcuterie. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm frame of grainy tannins and wonderful freshness framing the densely packed red and black fruit layers, finishing long. 1,740 cases produced. Drink 2020-2037." - LPB (10/18)
About this Wine:

These partners represent two generations in a long line of winemakers, a father and daughter team with distinct skills and visions, both of which benefit the wine they make: La Muse, La Joie and Le Désir. The outcomes have been successful: Vérité wines claim fifteen 100-Point Scores from Robert Parker Wine Advocate, plus the recent addition of 100-point score from Jeb Dunnuck.
Cenyth is the 2nd label of Verite and made by Hélène.
