Château des Gravières Red Bordeaux Blend Graves 2001

Member Review by jtryka:

The wine itself has a lovely deep purple to ruby coloration. The nose is a wonderful blend of rich red fruit, leather and smoke. The taste is remarkably fruit forward, with wonderful ripe plum, red berries and cassis that creates a seeming jolt of sweet fruit flavor that quickly transitions to black pepper and musty oak. The tannins are quite supple, offering a very smooth, dry finish. Given it's age, this wine is probably now entering its prime years for drinking, so it's a good thing I opened it!
