La Grave a Pomerol 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Aromas of plum and chocolate follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a chocolate and fruit aftertaste. Long and silky. Very beautiful...92-94" -WS 4/06."A strong effort from this generally elegant, light-bodied, finesse-styled cuvee, the 2005 exhibits more depth than normal along with deep raspberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with licorice and resiny pine forest notes. Sweet tannin, a velvety texture, impressive ripeness, and more stuffing and structure than usual suggest it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years 88-90" -WA 5/07"Stylish and elegant, this 2005 has as much in common with a Cote de Beaune premier cru as it does with a Pomerol. Kirsch, raspberry, seaweed, and loamy soil aromas lead to a medium-bodied, finesse-styled claret possessing sweet tannin, pure fruit, and a sensual personality. It begs to be consumed over the next decade..." -WA 04/08
