(2006 Vintage) Deep ruby color with violet hints, of great density and brilliance. The nose, though still somewhat discrete, reveals coconut, vanilla and candied cherry aromas.Tannins are dense and well integrated, balanced with natural acidity and followed by great fullness and ripeness.
Wine & Spirits(2005 Vintage) This large vineyard has build a following in the US market, with consistently good quality wine. And the rsquo;94 follows in the style of small-scale clarets, light, plummy and gentle, the chewy tannins bringing to mind a dinner of roast lamb. Thatrsquo;s how I used to enjoy Larose-Trintaudon, not so many years ago, when it cost $7.99. The only consolation in the current pricing is the fact that most California wines of this quality cost at least as much.
