Critical Acclaim

"This has lots of salty, juicy and enticing character to it. Full and velvety with gorgeous fruit So sexy. So sexy and elegant. Wonderful freshness too. Bright and sassy.
Barrel Sample: 94-95 Points "
95 Points

"Rounded and ripe, with dark blackberry and boysenberry flavors melded with ganache, melted black licorice and Black Forest cake. Lush, but with a lovely smoldering charcoal hint to keep this honest on the finish. Best from 2014 through 2025."
92 Points

"A strong showing from this blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc that hit 14.7% natural alcohol, the 2010 Rol Valentin exhibits oodles of sweet black currant and black raspberry fruit along with some toasty oak and a note of charcoal embers in a full-bodied, opulent, showy, even flamboyant style that seems to beg comparison to 2009."
92 Points

"Bright, deep red. Wild, musky red fruits and graphite on the nose, complicated by licorice and minerals. Sweet and silky on entry, then tight but smooth in the middle, with a delicate quality to the red fruit and underbrush flavors. The mildly tannic, moderately long finish features attractive perfume. I'm a big fan of this property, but this version seems almost too understated. Perhaps its second year in barrel and time in bottle will bring more weight and flesh.
Barrel Sample: 88-91 Points "
