    (Gruaud-Larose) Ehhh...maybe one of the most boring wines on the left bank? Well maybe GPL and Lynch-Bages could nudge it out but your mileage may vary. I have liked GL in the past but it really underwhelms me these days. This was out of half bottle and had a nice floral nose with a ton of spicey oak and some mineral. Palette was rich and creamy with lots of unfocused red fruits and major barrel flavors. It later became shrill as the acid became the dominant force. It was correct wine but just so boring. I find certain left bank estates like GL, LB, GPL to be a bore. I don't know why. It's just there is no excitement in the wines. Everything is predictable and these wines and wines of the same ilk are just good, plain old fashioned Bored-deaux.

    (Gruaud Larose) Nose of tarry oak, asian spice, earth and slight cassis. Nice nose. Great concentration of red fruits with a hint of vanilla from the oak. Good acids and around a 15 second finish. Very open. Excellent Gruaud for drinking now and for maybe 10-12 more years.
