2015 MR Napa Valley

 “A rich, unctuous wine, Michel Rolland's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is laced with the essence of super-ripe, inky blue/black fruit, exotic spice, lavender, menthol and chocolate notes. This prototypical, lush, modern Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully rendered. It should drink well for another 10-15 years. 93 pts”-  Vinous: Galloni

“The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon from Rolland is beautiful and shows a more structured, deep, layered side to the vintage. Blackcurrants, toasty oak, espresso, lead pencil shavings and hints of damp herbs all define this Bordeaux’esque beauty and it’s full-bodied, opulent and layered on the palate. Like the 2014, it’s beautifully balanced, has a deep, concentrated middle, and ripe tannin (which are covered by fruit at the moment), and will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and keep for two decades or more. 96 pts”- Jeb Dunnuck

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Red Wine has a compelling, lifted nose of ripe plums, warm blackberries and cassis with tapenade, garrigue and sautéed herbs suggestions, plus a waft of roses. Medium to full-bodied, refined and with tons of freshness, this is a very well-crafted and harmonious beauty that should be delicious straight out of the gate but will reward 5-7 years of cellaring and drinking a further 15-20 years thereafter.  96+ pts”
