The 2019 Vintage had a lengthy barrel as well as bottle ageing regime that we have recently implemented at Veritas. The vision of the finished wine is determined by the potential of its parts, and when putting the wine together Emily is really looking for approachable structure yet great ageability. The blend on this 2019 Reserve is vastly different from the Petit Verdot heavy blends of previous vintages and is comprised of 45% Cabernet Franc, 22% Malbec, and 19% Petit Verdot and 14% Merlot. It is deep garnet in color and the bouquet is a deeply integrated balance of leather enveloped in an aroma of fresh black fruit. Luscious flavors of blackberry unfold with rich tannins on the palate leaving a structured and elegant finish accentuated with complex flavors of caramel and mocha from barrel aging.
