Vintages Wine Panel: Château La Gorce is a grand 19th-century estate in the Médoc. Founded in 1821 by Madame La Gorce, the estate’s namesake, it is now owned by the Fabre family who have worked hard to restore the vineyards and improve the quality of the wines since taking ownership in the 1980s. Their efforts have been rewarded with a number of accolades including a Gold Medal for this 2005 vintage at the Paris Concours Général Agricole in 2007. Packed with ripe blackberry fruit flavors and sweet spice notes, this medium full-bodied blend of Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot is an exceptional value. My note: The phenomenal 2005 vintage comes through in spades in this wine: wow! I can’t believe the price for this quality. Gorgeous, intense notes of blackberry, cassis, violets, leather, tobacco and black tea. Well-constructed and balanced. A good, solid finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon Blend food pairings: beed en croule, kidneys, mature hard cheeses, roasted turkey, succotash.
