Mariflor Blend

2019 Vintage:

Jeb Dunnuck – 93 Points

The 2019 Mariflor Blend is based on a co-fermented blend of 60% Cabernet Franc and 40% Malbec brought up mostly in concrete, with 10% in oak. It has a healthy ruby/purple hue to go with a complex, Bordeaux-like, herbal nose of red and black currants, green tobacco, olive tapenade, cedar pencil, and spring flowers. It picks up bloody, iron-like nuances with time in the glass and is medium to full-bodied, with a round, supple, elegant mouthfeel and outstanding length. This is an elegant, restrained style from Rolland that shines for its purity, balance, and length. It should evolve for a solid decade. MATURITY 2023 – 2033

Tasting Notes:

The distinctive dark purple colour of Malbec, enhanced by much brilliance and brightness. The intense aromas reveal the lovely varietal nuances of Cabernet Franc and the robust spicy black fruit notes of Malbec. The same complementary combination can be found on the palate, resulting in elegance, power and richness. These two grape varieties are really made for each other, creating a magical final blend. A pleasure to drink in the next five to fifteen years, when it will be the perfect partner for all types of meat. – Michel Rolland
