Editor's Choice: Outstanding as always. Right from the first take it has an elevated sense of being. The nose is rich, warm and deeply fruited, with balsam wood and lemony notes. It's deep as a coal mine on the palate, with herbal, tobacco and leather accents sprucing up serious berry fruit flavors. Minty and sly on the finish, and lovely overall. Drink now through 2016.
Michel Rolland fashions this blend from a south-facing amphitheater, where the old vines are predominantly Carmenere. The vineyard produces a rich red, pushed to the edge of monumental excess in the warm 2007 vintage. The wine brings sweet things to mind--figs, Morello cherry marmalade, mocha and chocolate00while the texture is extravagent and dense. It's impressive, not only in stature, but also in the grandeur of its flavors.
