All the Michel Rolland touches are present and accounted for: the color is bright, the texture soft, and the fruit is ripe and expressive. Aromas of mint, clove and blackberries are intriguing, like a lure in front of a fish. And the finish is dark and luscious. It's an old-world Malbec wrapped in new clothes, clearly a wine for the new generation.
