This was fantastic. Much better than expected. It has aged gracefully and in a nice drinking window. Almost reminded a bit of Ridge Monte Bello. Had that new world/old world combo going that was lovely. 8/7/2023

Bouquet comes alive as it warms to room temp. gorgeous blackberry, currant, mint, vanilla and a touch of dark chocolate. palate is lively, again with mint, pronounced but attractive bell pepper, slightly tart red berries (rather than dark, as the nose suggests), and nicely integrated tannin on the close. a lovely mild saline mineral note holds on the finish. there is a real purity here that impresses. excellent. 94+ 12/17/2022

A Bordeaux blend of predominately Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2008 Larose displays a medium to deep garnet color and lovely mature notes of prunes, kirsch and red currant jelly with nuances of sandalwood, leather and aged meat. Tons of fruit flavor remains on the palate lifted by lively acid and framed by firm tannins, finishing with great length. (LPB) (1/2015)
