Plummy and perfumed, with sweet spices and currants. Lovely subtle nose. Full- to medium-bodied, with fine tannins and lovely balance. Ripe and pretty fruit. Could get even better. —J.S. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2008 Gruaud Larose 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

David Launay, General Manager of Gruaud-Larose, felt that the ripeness of2008 lended itself particularly to Merlot and altered the proportions of his2008 accordingly: 54% Cabernet, 34% Merlot and 12% Petit Verdot. Theconcentrated, sweet ripe red fruit of the Merlot certainly comes across in thislean but dense wine. With the hallmark Gruaud notes of cedar and spice, thiswill be approachable earlier than some but would nonetheless be a rewarding buyfor any cellar. <br/><br/>
