Blessed to celebrate 20 years of blissful marriage and 30 years total of togetherness, and she still takes my breath away daily. God definitely pulled all my ribs to create the muse who is my wife. Forever in love. Can’t wait to see how the next 20 unfolds. Oh yeah, ofcourse we are celebrating with our fav wine...never disappoints — a year ago
Impressive rosè with a beautiful bottle — 2 months ago
100% Zinfandel. Dry to off-dry Rosé. Aromas of candy and watermelon. Floral aromas such as rose petals. Resin-like character reminiscent of the scent of pine trees. Spicy notes throughout the mouth with flavors of raspberry and strawberry. — a year ago
Fruit forward, smooth Zin. Excellent! — a year ago

Celebrating my wife's first book!! Thought an aged RP 💯 point wine would do the trick.
3 hour decant (decent chunky sediment). A forbidding dark ruby red color. On the nose: very aromatic sweet perfume jumps from the glass with cherry, wet forest floor, bell pepper, and spice. Taste: red fruit, currents , chocolate, and minerals. Tannins have softened but still remind you they are still there. A dry, compact wine with a nice medium plus long blueberry pencil lead finish.
Verite has 3 Sonoma county cuvees made in Bordeaux styles that really need some age to shine:
Le Desir...Saint Emilion style (cab franc dominates).
La Jolie...Pauillac style (Cabernet Sauvignon dominates).
La Muse...Pomerol style (Merlot dominates) — a year ago
Spicy, peppery, Merlot/Tempranillo Blend. — 2 years ago
