"Beautiful deep ruby color. Pleasant fruity nose with discreet woody and licorice notes. On the palate, a frank attack, a wine both structured and melted. We like the finish that combines power, freshness and expression. Ideal with red meat. "

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2015 Chateau Larroque is primarily Merlot yet includes 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Cabernet Franc, all aged a year in French oak. It has a classic black cherry, currant, smoked earth, and licorice-driven bouquet and is a medium-bodied, incredibly charming, ripe 2015 that has loads to love. It should keep for 7-8 years."
