The 2013 Muse, like all 2013s, is sourced from roughly a third of the Alexander Valley vineyards, over 40% from Chalk Hill and the rest of Knights Valley and Bennett Valley - all hillside vineyards. hill at high altitude. A blend of 89% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec at 14.3% alcohol, the wine is surprisingly like a great vintage from Petrus, with mulberry, black cherry, licorice, smooth, thick and juicy truffle and fruit all present in this full-bodied masterpiece. The tannins are still present. The wine has purity and flavorful presence and is remarkable. The finish lasts well a minute. This wine would likely benefit from 5 to 8 years of bottle age and would last 40 to 50 years.

At Domaine Vérité, the wines are the product of an intimate alliance of European know-how and fruits from the New World. Characterized by the combination of the unique elements of

small plots of vineyard where it comes from, each wine is fully revealed in the meticulously arranged marriage of grape varieties, climate, soils and wine-making techniques. Vérité is the result of a meeting and collaboration between a visionary family, the Jackson family, and the famous winemaker Pierre Seillan.

Since its creation in 1998, Pierre Seillan has identified more than 40 micro-crus on the slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains, in Sonoma. These micro-crus are in fact small plots at the heart of plots, which reflect an incredible diversity of soils. Handcrafted with great care, for very low yields, they produce wines with character and exceptional quality.

For each vintage, Vérité offers 3 blends, inspired by Bordeaux wines: La Muse (dominated by Merlot), La Joie (dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon), and Désir (dominated by

by Cabernet Franc). These three wines have remarkable aging potential, but can be appreciated from the first years thanks to their voluptuousness and perfect balance.

The wines of Truth have obtained the 100 Parker points 13 times.

La Muse - Characterized by fruity and spicy notes, exceptional balance and amazing length, La Muse is a wine made primarily from Merlots. Each vintage of this wine pays homage to the style of the greatest Pomerols, while celebrating the quality of Merlot de Sonoma.
