If you read much about winemaking the name Michel Rolland will no doubt come up, several times. He’s a consultant oenologist who works with hundred of clients worldwide. At a steak house in Quebec they offered this blend of 55% Malbec, 19% Merlot, 10% Cabernet-Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot , 2% Cabernet Franc. It normally retails for $16 and garnered high marks from the pros so I had to try it.
Inky with rich aromas of blackberry, black currants, mint, charred wood and licorice. Full bodied with rich flavors and medium tannins. Gentle acidity makes for great mouthfeel. 92 points. Till 2028
Those were my tableside notes- very brief but you get the idea (I did not want to detract from the conversation to write details!). Drink this 5 star gem with steaks all day long- the pairing is magical. Salut….
