100-Point Pour by Vérité

French for "truth." Vérité is the result of old world experience applied in our new world vineyards, crafted by master vigneron, Pierre Seillan. A distinctive blend of unique components harvested from family-owned, small vineyard blocks in Sonoma County.

Join us for dinner tonight and enjoy a glass of the world-renowned 100-pt Vérité, La Joie Bordeux Blend for $100*. We will serve your pour in a Riedel Performance Glass so your palate can get to know the wine’s full expression, and then you can take two Riedel Performance glasses home for future tastings.

LA JOIE 2012/2013

Each of these similarly powerful and exceptional vintages is marked by exuberant aromas of redcurrant, black plum, and tart black cherry, framed by subtle French oak nuances of powdered cocoa, clove, and cedar. The Riedel Performance Cabernet Sauvignon glass will help you sense all of these complex elements with heightened intensity due to its bowl's wide surface area. As you sip, enjoy the easy weight of the glass, and flavors of cassis, fresh cut herbs, powdered mushrooms, and iron minerality. The finish is long, and underscored by a subtle, earthy component of freshly turned topsoil.
