82 at its finest. Perhaps the best vintage of Larose.

From a good looking bottle with a great fill. Decanted for 3.5 hours. Deep tawny color, suggests a little age. Great old Bordeaux nose. Notes of black cherry, sliced plums, old cedar desk, Cuban cigar, some mocha and some leather saddle. Really nice in the mouth. Has a nice sweetness to it. Lasting finish. Still at peak and bottles like this are staying there for a while.

In a great spot. Menthol finish is marked, overtaking round and rich mid palate. Lean attack and warm oak finish.
