Michel Rolland is a wine world superstar who has been working with consulting winemaker Jean Hoefliger since the 2006 vintage to create world class wines. With one of the world’s most famous palates, Rolland brings his extraordinary expertise to both the vineyard and the cellar. Besides consulting for highly regarded wineries around the world, Rolland continues to produce his own wines at his estates in Bordeaux where he also directs one of the wine industry’s most respected laboratories. A blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon with dollops of Cabernet Franc and Malbec, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon MR is very deep purple-black in color and gives up bold scents of baked blueberries, plum preserves, spice cake and mocha with hints of chargrilled meats, sandalwood and dusty soil plus a waft of garrigue. Full, concentrated and packed with black fruit preserves and savory layers, it has a solid yet plush frame and very long, spicy finish.
