Michel Rolland Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep ruby/purple colored wine offering intense aromas of berry, fresh herbs, white chocolate and creme de cassis followed by a rich, full-bodied palate with velvety tannins and harmonious aromas of ripe black plums, blackberry, kirsch and licorice. Subtle notes of cocoa and tobacco lingers through the long, complex finish.
"This well-known wine consultant produces 250 cases of his 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon at the Alpha Omega winery. It is fashioned from a blend of many different vineyards, including Stagecoach on Atlas Peak, the Beckstoffer Dr. Crane and Beckstoffer To Kalon vineyards. Rolland delivers the goods in this 2012, which rivals his brilliant 2010. A dense purple color is accompanied by notes of charcoal, subtle barbecue smoke, creme de cassis, kirsch, licorice and vanillin. Full-bodied with low acidity, a fleshy, succulent, pure, well-endowed style, and a 40+-second finish, this rich, seriously endowed beauty is never over-the-top or out of balance. It is a world-class Cabernet Sauvignon such as Rolland has been making for over 35 years. Drink it over the next 15-20 years." - Wine Advocate
"This captures ripe, rich, firm blackberry, graphite and mineral notes, with a wall of extracted tannins on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2018 through 2028. " - Wine Spectator
