An elegant, rich and complex red from Sonoma County

From 4 different vineyards (Alexander Valley, Bennett Valley, Chalk Hill and Knights Valley) with volcanic soils, varying altitudes and vines that are the same age (approximately 25 for Alexander Valley, 11 for Bennett Valley, 15 for Chalk Hill and 20 for Knights Valley), "Muse" from Verite is a red produced in the Sonoma County appellation of California. The wine is matured in new French oak barrels, for 15 months (on average). "Muse" 2013 is a blend of 89% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec.

"Muse" 2013 from Verite presents a beautiful deep red colour. The nose develops rich and spicy aromas, with notes of undergrowth. Flavours of truffle, liquorice and cherry are present in the mouth. The finish is long and persistent with elegant tannins. A wine known for its complex energy. To be enjoyed throughout 2034-2044.

Parker : 100 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 La Muse, like all of the 2013s, comes about one-third from Alexander Valley vineyards, 40-plus percent from Chalk Hill, and the rest Knights Valley and Bennett Valley âÇô all high-elevation hillside vineyards. A blend of 89% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec at 14.3% alcohol, the wine is amazingly like a great vintage of Petrus, with mulberry, black cherry, licorice, truffle and unctuous, thick, juicy fruit all present in this full-bodied masterpiece. The tannins are still present. The wine has purity and savory presence and is remarkable. The finish goes on for well past a minute. This wine would probably benefit from 5-8 years of bottle age and last 40-50 years.
