Product Description

La Joie exhibits the structure, depth and power of Cabernet Sauvignon from Sonoma County, and takes inspiration from the lauded reds France's Pauillac. We couldn't be more proud to share that four of the last five vintages of this lushly textured wine have achieved scores of 95 or higher from premier critical voices.

Robert Parker 100 The Wine Advocate - "The 2012 La Joie, which is a blend of 76% Cabernet, 12% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, blew me away. A profound effort, with 55% of it coming from Hillsides in Alexander Valley, 31% from Knights Valley and the balance from Chalk Hill, the wine shows great minerality, oodles of creme de cassis fruit, incense, licorice, crushed rock, and a provocative full-throttle mouthfeel. A wine of great intensity, purity and equilibrium, this definitely begs for 4-7 years of bottle aging and should drink well for at least 30+ years."

V94 Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "Dark cherries, smoke, graphite, licorice, menthol and plums are some of the notes that open up in the 2012 La Joie. Here the flavors are bold, intense and incisive, with notable freshness and intensity. Give this large-scaled Cabernet Sauvignon-based red another few years in bottle. The finish alone is striking."

WS91 Wine Spectator - "Smooth and creamy at the start, with a mix of mocha and vanilla flavors, showing notes of dry, dusty currant, blueberry, blackberry, licorice and fresh-turned earth. Ends with gritty, gravelly tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2028"
