Verite - 2006 - La Muse - 750 ml.
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Vintage: 2006 - Size: 750 ml. - Type: redThis wine possesses a superb deep color, followed by a nose of black cherries. The initial impressions are very rich and powerful. The tannins coat the inside of your mouth with a lasting impression. The oak is well integrated and elegant from start to finish. Will drink well after 7 years of aging.
The 2006 La Muse is in the prime of its life and at an ideal stage for drinking. A blend of 86% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 4% Malbec, it has soaring, complex aromas of dried red and black cherries, black truffles, dried sage and old leather, plus wafts of dried roses and mint. The medium to full-bodied palate is beginning to soften gently, its rounder tannins and acidity complementing its arresting layers of truffle and savory maturity. It will continue to hold in the cellar over the next decade.
