Tasting Notes

A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated Bordeaux blend, the deep garnet/purple-colored 2012 Larose presents a nose of cassis, ripe black plums and black cherries with suggestions of cigar box, cedar, bay leaves and toast. The medium-bodied palate is tightly wound at this youthful stage, though gives plenty of blackberry and toasty flavors wrapped in a medium level of finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity. It finishes with very good length. Drink it 2014 to 2024+. Lisa Perrotti-Brown
