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).

“Wow—it comes strutting out of the glass with flamboyant crème de cassis, ripe plums and black cherries notes followed by nuances of aniseed, chocolate box, wild thyme, violets and chargrill plus a fragrant suggestion of potpourri. Full-bodied, rich and concentrated, the densely packed perfumed black fruit layers are beautifully framed by perfectly ripe, finely grained tannins and fantastically knit freshness. It finishes long with the most incredible display of mineral sparks.

“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."
