Vérité – If it is high-end cellar worthy wines you seek, look no further. Vérité specializes in ultra-premium Bordeaux style blends that not only rival the cult all-stars in Napa like Harlan and Screaming Eagle, they consistently outscore them as well.

They are the only winery in this region to ever receive seven perfect 100 point scores from Robert Parker, with numerous 98 and 99 point wines as well. They make three distinct Meritage blends each vintage, each depicting a specific region of Bordeaux. Their first wine, La Muse, is a “Right-Bank”, Pomerol-style blend, which is Merlot dominant and designed specifically to best Chateau Petrus. Next, La Joie, is their “Left Bank”, Pauillac-styled, Cabernet Sauvignon dominant blend that rivals Mouton-Rothchild.

Last, but certainly not least, is Le Désir their Saint-Émilion-styled blend which is Cabernet Franc focused and designed to rival Cheval Blanc. Vérité has more 100 point wines than all the first-growths combined and a value in comparison, even at $400(+) a bottle. No expense is spared in crafting these outstanding wines and they are truly wines without compromise. Not only are the wines spectacular, but the hospitality at Vérité is also top notch and their collectors are extremely valued and well taken care of. Vérité is undeniably one of, if not the best wineries in America for serious wine collectors.
