"The 2014 growing season was an exceptional one in Sonoma, with a perfect early bloom matched by a beautiful veraison. It was steadfastly sunny yet not too hot, providing a perfect ripening for Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with a longer ripening of Cabernet Sauvignon yielding fruit expressions with elegant and spicy tannins. I consider Sonoma terroir one of the best in the world for Bordeaux blends; it is endowed by complex topography, diversity of soils and an exceptional climate. These elements are all elevated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, which brings a loyal cooling wind to regulate the temperature every evening. Harvest took place September 3rd through September 20th." – Pierre Seillan, Vigneron
The structure and integrity of Cabernet Sauvignon is on full display in this remarkably complex and layered wine. Cassis, tobacco box and truffle unite in a powerful testament to the varietal. Born in the gravelly, volcanic soils of Sonoma county, the voice of this terroir will echo from the bottle for decades to come.
97+ Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate - The 2014 La Joie has a spicy black purple color and a big, sweet kiss of camphor, black truffle, pen ink, blackcurrants and unsmoked cigar tobacco, followed by layers of fruit and glycerin in an opulent, beautifully savory, pure and multidimensional wine…This is a compellingly great effort once again. It should be given 2-5 years of bottle age, then drunk over the following three decades.
