Tasting Notes

Robert Parker – 96

A blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc, 9% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Malbec, the 2009 La Joie sports a very deep garnet color. It opens with baked plums, licorice and blackcurrant cordial notes—on steroids—with an undercurrent of oolong tea, aged meats, fragrant earth and new leather plus a waft of black olives. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers mouth-filling evolved black fruits and earthy sparks with a foundation of firm, chewy tannins and soft freshness, finishing long with some herbal accents coming through. 2,400 cases were made.

Anticipated maturity: 2020-2040

Vinous – 95+

Dark ruby. Multidimensional aromas of cassis, dried cherry, black cardamom, black tea, juniper, violet and graphite. More minerally, pristine and polished than the Désir but also penetrating and backward, with its intense mountain berry flavors showing a restrained sweetness and compelling juiciness and energy. The tannins are firm but noble, with the wine’s finishing fruits, flowers and minerals saturating the palate and titillating the taste buds. This beauty is built for the long haul. (14.5% alcohol) [Stephen Tanzer, 25/07/2019]

Anticipated maturity: 2024-2042

JancisRobinson.com – 17

78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec. Evolved, bright, dark crimson. The first bottle had rather a stewed nose but the second bottle was much more impressive. Fresh, sweet, sappy with some complex maturity. Some tannin and dried herbs on the end. [02/12/2017]

Anticipated maturity: 2015-2022
