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.

    very good and everyone loved it but doesn't quite live up to the promise of the earthy truffly nose when you taste it - one of Clay's
