Winemaker's Notes

(From 2002 Vintage) A sweet, fruity, medium-bodied, surprisingly forward effort, the deep plum/purple-colored 2002 Gruaud Larose exhibits ripe aromas revealing herbaceous as well as spice notes. There is some potentially worrisome astringent tannin in the finish, but the wine’s depth augers well for this being ultimately resolved and integrated.

    (From 2006 Vintage) 60% Cabernet Sauvignon; 30% Merlot; 6% Cabernet Franc; 3% Petit Verdot; 1% Malbec. This curious offering is at once both ripe and slightly herbal in tone with a bias to softness in balance. It never musters more than minimal fruit and comes up a bit dilute on the palate, and we have our doubts about its ability to improve with aging.
