Vintages Wine Panel: From a lesser-known estate, this 2005 Bordeaux was a Gold Medal winner at the Concours de Bordeaux in 2006. Château Larroque is on a plateau near the Graves appellation, in the village of Coimères, and is run, as it has been for years, by the Ducourt family. This treasure offers excellent structure, blue and blackberry characteristics with bramble fruit and earth tones. A real find from this highly rated vintage. My note: Classic notes of cassis, blackcurrant and blackberries. Some tobacco, licorice and herbs in the background. Plenty of tannins so decant for 1-2 hours.

Cabernet Sauvignon Blend food pairings: prime rib steak, roast lamb, oyster and kidney pie, game terrine.
