Deep plummy color. Wonderful nose, with cherry fruit aromas. Fine tannins. Needs at least an hour in the decanter. We drank this over 2 hours, and it just got better and better. Terrific Bordeaux.

Aromas of blackberry, toasted oak, sweet tobacco and espresso. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, fruity finish. I like the texture. Best after 2010. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 16,665 cases made. (JS) Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2003 Gruaud Larose 750ml

Harmonious and pretty. good color, with plenty of tobacco, berry and mushrooms character, a hint of iodine. Full-bodied, with polished, silky tannins and a long aftertaste of tobacco, cedar and vanilla. Best after 2001.

This tight and powerful red has lots of tannins and fruit concentration. Full-bodied, with lovely violet and berry aromas and flavors. Built for aging. Best after 2002.

In the bottle, Gruaud-Larose appears to have returned to the form it possessed when I first tasted it from cask - a stylish, surprisingly civilized, medium-bodied wine without the muscle and power expected from both this terroir and vintage. It still possesses excellent density as well as roasted herb, licorice, and black currant flavors intermixed with incense-like smells. The wine is medium to full-bodied, pure, rich, and forward, especially for the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018.

Greatest wine from the estate since 1945. Absolutely wonderful aromas of flowers, currants and citrus. Full-bodied, yet very, very refined, with a center core of fruit that tastes like crushed raspberries. It goes on and on across the palate. Best after 2010.

A typical wine for the year with its generous ripe fruit and blackberry jelly flavors. There is just a hint of animal on the palate, but it is overwhelmed by the wine's rich texture.

Harmonious, but lacks a bit of concentration. Pretty, with delicious chocolate and berry aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Best after this year.
