Vérité Le Désir 2015
|Region||California, Sonoma County|
The hallmark of the 2015 Le Désir is its structured and precise palate. There is a line here, a balance between softness and hardness: iron-rich, rocky minerality, aromas of new leather and cigar, the clear, driving expression of bright red fruit. Wild blackberries, cherries, and crisp apple join with the signature herbal tone of Cabernet Franc. Fresh, subtle pea shoots and heirloom tomato vine, notes of red licorice and tobacco box pave the way to a linear, silky finish, resounding with a floral bouquet of lilacs and violets. Remarkably expressive in its youth, Le Désir is a multi-layered and complex wine. Its depths will unfold for ages.
The 2015 Le Désir, Vérité's Cabernet Franc-based red, is racy and sumptuous in the glass. Bright floral notes give lift to the red-toned fruit as this silky yet powerful wine shows off its alluring personality.
