Vérité La Muse 2014 was rated a perfect 100 points by Robert Parker.

Vérité (French for truth) is a Sonoma County winery which describes its wines as 'Bordeaux-inspred blends' in its quest to pay homage to the finest Bordeaux wines from Pauillac and Saint-Emilion - combining old world experience and knowledge with new world Californian fruit. Each component of the blend is harvested from small vineyard blocks (micro-crus), resulting in a carefully considered convergence of grape varieties, climate, soil exposition and winemaking technique. Winemaker Pierre Seillan refers to this conjunction as droit du sol (right of the soil).

“...a legendary effort. The wine offers an opaque purple color and a gorgeous nose of lead pencil shavings, blackberry, incense, Asian spice, cocoa, plum, and a touch of chocolate and barrique. On the palate, more cassis and blackberry come to the forefront. The wine is unctuous, with adequate acidity and a stunning energy underneath the massive fruit and body. This is a spectacularly fragrant and, at the same time, dense wine, with enough structure (somewhat surprising in this vintage) to last 35-45+ years."

“These are legendary wines of great extract, richness and potential of longevity and complexity. No compromises are made and the credit goes certainly to the Jackson family for supporting the efforts of winemaker Pierre Seillan." Robert Parker
