Fresh, good fruit tones and nice balance. - WS Grand Tour 2011
Aroma perfumey. Red fruits of raspberry, cherries. Some licorice. Subtle tobacco at the end. Paired nicely with foie GRAS, squab, lamb. Elegant but a bit short at the finish.
This was one of the business class wines served on 2 recent air france flights, and was memorably enjoyable. I didn't expect to find it in this $30 price range, however. At $15-18 it would be an excellent buy.
One half glass
Dark ruby; on the nose there's blackcurrant, black cherry, tobacco, cedar, and hints of mint and barnyard. Medium bodied, medium+ acidity, and soft tannins. Red cherry, blackcurrant, and earthy notes on the palate. I suspect this is peaking, so glad we opened this up.

This has good dark plum and mulled cherry fruit, with a dusting of spice on the finish. Nice firm tobacco edge adds length.-J.M. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Rollan de By 750ml
Solid, with a core of raspberry and steeped blackberry fruit inlaid with anise, apple wood and wood spice notes, all backed by a well-integrated graphite edge on the finish. Drink now through 2020. -JM Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Rollan de By 750ml
