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, 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.

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.

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.

(Barrel tasting) This wine is black. Super aromas of licorice and tar, then violets. Full-bodied, with sleek and racy tannins. Very long finish. Best Gruaud ever?

A dense garnet/ruby/purple color is followed by a wine with a sweet, jammy, black-cherry, Asian spice, soy, and earthy-scented nose. This big, beefy, medium to full-bodied 1995 Gruaud Larose displays excellent ripeness, plenty of muscle and glycerin, and sweet yet noticeable tannin in the heady, intensely spicy finish. this is a mid-weight, substantial wine that needs 6-7 years to shed its tannin; it should keep for two decades.

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.
