A blend of 93% Merlot / 7% Cabernet Franc (92% from the Alexander Mountain Estate, 6% from Bennett Valley and 2% from Knight’s Valley), the 2002 La Muse is a “kissing cousin” of the 2001, only softer and more flamboyant. Classically Californian in its exuberant, flamboyant, super-rich, unctuously textured style, the tannins are softer than in the 2001, but the wine unquestionably has the potential to last for another quarter of a century. It exhibits an opaque plum/purple color along with abundant notes of cassis, licorice, graphite, coffee cake and spice box. More approachable than the 2001, the 2002 will offer phenomenal drinking over the next 25 years. ||Tel. (707) 433-9000; Fax (707) 431-1261 Wine Advocate.June, 2012

Verite is the late Jess Jackson's iconic North Coast Californian label. Regularly rated between 98 and 100 points by Robert Parker, the three wines in the range - the Pauillac-esque La Joie, the Pomerol-styled La Muse and the St Emilion-like Le Desir - are blended from Jackson's best parcels in Sonoma and are made by Bordeaux native Pierre Seillan. Jess first met Pierre in 1995 and asked him if he could Make something like Petrus over here" Pierre replied "Maybe, but why not make something better?".
