Winemaker's Notes:

La Grave offers a beautiful counterpoint to the Goutere. This Left-Bank blend based on Cabernet Sauvignon, complimented by Merlot and Cabernet Franc from vineyards at the northern end of the Medoc, near Saint-Estephe, has excellent grip and intensity notes of blackberries, graphite, and licorice brim from the glass. This wine has an incredible amount of stuffing for such a dainty price tag!
Best served with grilled meats and ripe, soft cheeses.
