Critic Notes

The first vintage of Verite’s Le Desir, the 2000 is a blend of 51% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Franc and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, all from Jess Jackson’s Sonoma vineyards. This well-made wine exhibits fruitcake notes intermixed with round, herbaceously tinged berry fruit and a hint of subtle oak in its medium to full-bodied, tasty, spicy personality. Fully mature, it will not be long lived by the standards of Verite, but it should continue to drink well for another 5-6 years. May 2011, www.robertparker.com

From the show-stopping to the subtle, we take a look ...

Beautiful wines deserve to be made in beautiful surroundings. Here are five of the wine world's greatest architectural gems...
