Another gem is the 2018 Veracity, which boasts a medium to full-bodied, focused, elegant style that's the hallmark of this estate to go with plenty of intensity and opulence in its jammy blackberry fruits and notes of ground pepper, violets, and spicy nuances. It has firm yet ripe tannins, and everything is nicely balanced. It can certainly be enjoyed today, but it will be even better in 2-3 years and evolve for a decade.

95pts Wine Enthusiast

Roasted black-cherry and black-plum aromas are laced with mocha and charred meat on the nose of this blend of 48% Mourvèdre, 39% Grenache and 13% Syrah. The palate packs both power and elegance, as the rich, viscous flavors of charred berry, violet and meat are contained by chalky tannins and a backbone of acidity.

94pts James Suckling

The dominance of mourvedre in this red makes it really attractive, with blackberry, black-olive and asphalt aromas that follow through to a full body with round, creamy tannins and a savory finish. I like the chewy tension at the end. Mourvedre, grenache and syrah. Drink or hold.

94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Veracity has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and gregarious bursts of mint and coffee supported by black and red berry fruits laced with aniseed and spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied, firm and grainy with fantastic juicy character and a long, spicy finish.

Winemaker Notes

The aromas and flavors are seductively reductive at first and open up to a velvety, seamless, and bountiful combination of savory, floral, earthy, and fruity elements: forest floor, roasted meats and sweet leather, lavender and rose petals, blood orange and dark plum.
