Soft and fruity; reminiscent of an ageing Spanish Tempranillo. Quite a light wine; personal taste being for a more full bodied wine. Very pleasant.

Incredible amount of tannin. Heavy on the Merlot in the blend. Dry and mouth smacking. Opens up with time if you let it sit. Wonderful notes of oak to an overall dark berry taste. Medium bodied and complex.

WOW! This wine has reached it's pinnacle I believe and I am so glad I found this rogue bottle. Deep, rich and well balanced while being super concentrated. This is a powerful, yet graceful cab and it drinking exquisitely right now. If you can find it, drink it now!

Great fruit, earthiness and mineral flavors. Blueberry pops nicely.

Decanted 30 min. Nose of earth, smoke and blueberry fruit. Attack and mid-palate are similar, with a tar component appearing as well. I love the earthiness and big blueberry flavors. This went very well with a vegetarian pizza. One of my favorite offerings from Stolpman, I'm extremely disappointed they discontinued this cuvee. The latest release of their Estate Syrah has 15% Grenache, so I'm *hoping* it will be similar to this wine (especially since I'm down to my last bottle!).

Had this twice in the last 2-3 weeks and enjoyed. Nice, complex, what you would expect from a Napa Cab, nothing extraordinary but very solid.

A lot of candied fruit covering up a lot of tannin. Good with beef. An in your face wine. A little softer tannins and less overripe fruit would be more to my taste.

La Croix Chevaliere VdP d´Oc 2003 - Laroche : La Croix Chevaliere VdP d´Oc 2003 - Rotwein von LarocheDiese wunderbare Cuvée wird nur in besonders guten Jahren vinifiziert. Aromen der Brombeeren, Johannisbeeren und Bitterschokolade verwöhnen gemeinsam mit einer feinen Vanillenote den Gaumen. Der Wein wird 18 Monate in französischer Eiche ausgebaut und anschließend unfiltriert in die Flasche gefüllt. Nach weiteren acht Monaten wird der La Croix Chevaliere VdP d´Oc 2003 erst auf den Markt gebracht. Dieser Rotwein ist besonders zu kräftigen Wildgerichten mit Backpflaumensauce, geschmorten Rinderbäckchen mit Sternanis oder zu einem kräftigen Châteaubriand zu empfehlen.Weingut: LarocheLand: FrankreichRegion: Languedoc - FaugèresRebsorte: Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, MourvèdreInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 14,0 Vol.%Fassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate)Empfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18°CLagerfähigkeit: 7 - 10 Jahre ab Jahrgang Suche nach Rebsorten > Rote Rebsorten > Grenache

Ruby-red. Alluringly perfumed bouquet of red- and black currant, cherry, musky herbs and mocha. Dry, focused and complex, with currant, cherry pit, fruitcake and candied rose flavors given shape by slightly gritty tannins. finishes a bit dry, but with firm grip. Give this some air and drink up.

Mature black fruit and a velvety palate recommend this bodegaandrsquo;s top of the line offering. The grapes are from a selected vineyard plot that was planted in 1920. Powerful yet elegant, lush yet complex, it features potent, sweet tannins, graphite, chocolate and chewy dark fruit, and excellent acidity.
