  • Château Rolland-Maillet Red Bordeaux Blend St. Émilion 2006


    This little-known, modest estate has produced a fine effort here- there is much to like on the nose what with bright, sweet cherry in abundance. On entry, this wine is velvety-smooth, balanced (dissipated tannin) and with a full, creamy mouth-feel. Could last a couple more years but seems perfect now. 88 points. Read More

  • Cap 42 2006


    Oak and vanilla comes out right off the bat followed by some forest aromas- pine. Licorice, cloves, black currant and dark cherry comes through after swirling and smelling again. The taste comes through as sweet with a nice tannic finish. Well balanced with the sweetness, acidity, tannins, and oak. Would go well with grilled steak- not a heavy r... Read More
