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

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.

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.

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.

(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?

This saturated bluish-black/purple-colored wine seems at first closed and broodingly backward. In the mouth, it is dense, textured, full-bodied, pure, yet, at the same time, closed. This wine is large-sized, with high tannin but equally high extract and richness. The wine will require patience, and seems to me to be the best effort Gruaud Larose has put forth since their sumptuous 1990. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.

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.
