Notes from the Winemaker:

“The Desire” This expression of Cabernet Franc is lifted upon a pedestal of merlot, cabernet sauvignon and malbec, showing layers of concentrated fruit and exotic spice, opulent aromatics, and a plush sueded texture.

Ratings & Reviews

100 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 64% Cabernet Franc, 27% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Malbec, the very deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Le Désir is a little reticent at this very youthful stage, offering glimpses at dusty soil, iron ore, black truffles and salami notes over a core of red currant jelly, black raspberries, blackberries and star anise plus a waft of roses. Medium-bodied, very firm and very elegant yet incredibly intense in the mouth, it delivers loads of red fruit and earthy layers, finishing with great length and depth. 2,500 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (28th Feb 2018)

98 Points - James Suckling:
"Love the aromas of black cherries and blackberries, violets and roses. Stunning. Full-bodied, layered and dense with focus and precision. Full tannins, yet compressed and polished. A great cabernet franc-based red. Give this four to five years of bottle age before drinking but already beautiful to taste." - (May 23, 2018)

96-98 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"The 2015 Le Désir, Vérité's Cabernet Franc-based red, is racy and sumptuous in the glass. Bright floral notes give lift to the red-toned fruit as this silky yet powerful wine shows off its alluring personality." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2018)
