Rol Valentin 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Licorice and tar, with hints of ripe berry. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and dense tannins. Yet it's all in near-perfect harmony. This has a new owner and it's even better...94-97" WS 04/10

The color of this beautiful rose is an intense translucent magenta. Pure aromas of strawberry mash with light spicy notes make the palate thirst for a taste. Ripe merlot from the excellent 2009 vintage provides the foundation for a fruit forward palate while a subtle note of fresh-picked tarragon provides a lovely herbal counterpoint to the rich fruit. Excellent acidity from start to finish creates a real thirst-quencher! Rol Valentin was our Best Buy of the 2009 vintage on our visit to en primeurs earlier this year and this serious rosi reflects the quality of the harvest. Perfect for aperitifs or try with grilled lamb or quail salad. Chuck Hayward.

This is juicy, round with great thick fruit on the finish that is layered and fully integrated comprising a wine tha... Chuck Hayward.
