Description
Merlot-dominant La Muse delivers incredible depth and texture using the finest grape sources from the top micro-crus of eastern Sonoma County. La Muse was first produced in 1998 and was inspired by the finest wines of Pomerol. Vigneron Pierre Seillan tends to a mosaic of more than fifty micro-crus to produce the wine’s complex signature. The 2018 La Muse radiates a deep ruby-violet color, which gives rise to perfumed aromas of ripe red and black plum, new leather, violet blossom, and freshly turned clay, framed by sweet baking spices and subtle toast. The palate mirrors the nose, along with a cornucopia of crunchy red and black fruits, dark baking cocoa, and sanguine iron elements. All of this complexity is supported by powdery tannins and bright acidity, driving to a very long, rich and complex finish.

This deep ruby-violet red wine entices with flavors and aromas of ripe plum, new leather, violet blossom, freshly turned clay, sweet baking spices, and subtle toast. Crunchy red and black fruits, dark baking cocoa, and sanguine iron accents intrigue against powdery tannins and bright acidity before leading to a very long, rich, and complex finish.
