90% Paderewski and 10% Catapult Vineyards
47% Mourvèdre | 34% Grenache | 19% Syrah
Aged 18 months: 36% in concrete tulip and the balance in French oak mid-sized
Jeb Dunnuck | 96 
Based on 47% Mourvèdre, 34% Grenache, and 19% Syrah, the 2017 Veracity is beautifully done, revealing a core of blue fruits, plenty of peppery herbs, violets, spice, and floral notes, medium to full body, and a great finish. It’s one of those wines that grows on you with time in the glass, and I suspect it will be even better with another 2-3 years of bottle age (although it’s terrific today). -September 2020 (Jeb Dunnuck)

Vinous | 96
Deep violet. Intensely perfumed aromas of dark berry preserves, cherry liqueur, licorice and exotic spices are complemented by a suave floral overtone. Sappy cherry-vanilla, cassis and blueberry flavors stain the palate and become spicier with air. Finishes smooth and exceptionally long and precise, with resonating spiciness and polished tannins that add gentle final grip. -Decmber 2020 (Josh Raynolds)

Wine Advocate | 94
The 2017 Veracity is a blend of 47% Mourvèdre, 34% Grenache and 19% Syrah aged 18 months in 26% new French oak. It has a medium to deep ruby-purple color and is youthfully reluctant on the nose. With time, it reveals aromas of blackcurrant, milk chocolate, fresh blueberries, redcurrants, blood orange and desiccated roses with notes of pink peppercorn and salumi. The palate is medium to full-bodied, silky and gaining in amplitude, opening to red, blue and black fruits with oodles of floral perfume. It has a firm, grainy frame and mind-bending juiciness to lift the long, layered finish. Give this at least another 2-3 years in bottle. 870 cases produced.         -February 2020 (Erin Brooks)
