A beautiful wine with intense color and a red crown along the edges, the 2010 La Joie reveals a silky, soft and voluptuously fruity nose with a touch of discreet oak and fine spices. It opens with an opulent palate of red and black fruits, spices and licorice before giving way to an impressively long finish. This is a wine with very fine tannins; a wine of balance between fruit and minerality. While it can be enjoyed young this wine will age at least 20 years.

With the lowest alcohol (14%), the 2010 La Joie is composed of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Copious aromas of incense, unsmoked cigar tobacco, Christmas fruitcake, cedar, underbrush, black currants and a hint of espresso roast emerge from this medium to full-bodied, rich, concentrated red. It needs 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep well for 2 to 3 decades.
