Verite La Muse 2005
The 2005 vintage is a very dark, opaque ruby in color. On the nose there are polished, Bordeaux-like aromas of black cherry and licorice. On the palate it is full-bodied, very focused and balanced. This wine shows notes of black cherry and licorice and has a spicy finish with long, elegant and lingering soft minerality. This wine is drinking beautifully now and will continue to age very gracefully.
