The Winery

Vérité

"The landscape of Sonoma County gives us more than 40 different soil types, and each reveals its special character through the vine. In French, we call this unique, insistent personality the droit du sol, or right of the soil. As vigneron, my goal is to craft wines that represent their origins - the truth of the soil - with great fidelity."
- Pierre Seillan, Proprietor

Vérité is dedicated to crafting Bordeaux-inspired blends that stand among the world's finest — and that express our Sonoma County terroir with beautiful transparency. To this end, Vigneron Pierre Seillan works closely with vineyard managers throughout the year, following the fruit from bud break to crush in order to intimately understand its personality and potential to contribute to our three wines.

In an historic moment, wine critic Robert Parker, Jr., of The Wine Advocate recently announced seven 100-point scores for Vérité’s three blends, Le Désir, La Joie and La Muse. This is the first time a Sonoma County winery has received this many perfect scores.

Tasting Notes

WA100
A perfect wine, this blend of 85% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Malbec emerges from Chalk Hill (48%), Knight’s Valley (21%), Alexander Mountain Estate (21%) and Bennett Valley (10%). Another prodigious effort, its extraordinary sweet notes of caramelized herbs, mocha, coffee, blackberries and cassis are followed by a multilayered, full-bodied wine revealing a seamless integration of acidity, tannin, alcohol and wood, and an opulent, voluptuous finish that goes on and on. It is thrilling to smell, taste and drink. Moreover, it possesses a similar seamlessness also found in the 2002 and 2001. Because of that, it can be drunk now for its primary attractions or cellared for another 30+ years.
