Chateau Gruaud-Larose Bottle 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"I would have rated the 2011 Gruaud Larose slightly higher if it had not been for the abundant, dry, slightly astringent tannins in the finish. Nevertheless, there is a lot to like about this plum/purple-tinged St.-Julien. Notes of unsmoked, high quality cigar tobacco are intertwined with plum, black currant and dusty, earthy, loamy soil characteristics. The wine reveals good richness, medium body and a structured, somewhat formidable level of tannin that needs to melt away before this 2011 can be fully enjoyed. Give it 2-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades." --Robert Parker*Robert Parker rating: (89-91 pts.)**We will notify you on arrival summer 2014.*

61% cabernet sauvignon, 29% merlot, 7% cabernet franc, and 3% petit verdot. Aged in one-third new oak barrels. Dark fruit notes of blackberry and marion berry burst from the glass, supported by aromas of dark chocolate, tobacco, and a touch of cedar.... Alex Shaw. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Gruaud Larose 1500ml
