95-98 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2012
(86% merlot, 11% cabernet franc, and 3% cabernet sauvignon): Good bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackberry, licorice, cocoa powder, minerals, pepper and sexy spice oils. Then juicy and gripping in the mouth, with superb energy to the flavors of blackberry, cocoa, licorice and violet. An impression of peppery acidity adds punch to the middle palate and extends the flavors on the extremely long, rising finish, which features toothdusting tannins. This is actually the highest in alcohol of the three Verite wines in 2010, at 14.3%.
