Notes from the Winemaker:

“The Joy” The structure, depth, and power of Cabernet Sauvignon are supported by an artful blend of merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot. Lushly textured, this wine defines both the beauty and the power of the cabernet sauvignon.

Ratings & Reviews

99 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the 2015 La Joie features a very deep purple-black color and almost electric nose of crushed blackcurrants, ripe black cherries and mulberries with sparks of raspberry pie, wild blueberries, unsmoked cigars, charcuterie and crushed stones. Medium to full-bodied and charged with the most amazing energy, the youthful, vibrant black-fruited palate is framed by very firm, very finely grained tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing with lingering crushed stones and earth layers. 4,000 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (28th Feb 2018)

97 Points - James Suckling:
This is a beautiful cabernet sauvignon-based red with blackcurrants, blueberries and a light mint character. Full-bodied, firm and tight with a compressed fruit structure and polished tannins. Extremely long and focused. A beautiful wine. Mostly cabernet sauvignon. Drink in 2021." - (May 23, 2018)

96 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Vérité's 2015 La Joie is deep, powerful and structured, with tons of Cabernet savoriness running through a core of intense, dark fruit. Grilled herbs, leather, menthol and licorice all develop in the glass. Sumptuous and yet also structured, La Joie is another winner from Vérité." - Antonio Galloni (Apr 2018)
