Rollingdale 2008 Le Droit Merlot
Tobacco, spicy, black olive, cherry, plum, light floral and barnyard aromas. Smooth, round, supple and elegant palate, with plum, carrot top, tobacco, earthy, spicy, vanilla, meaty flavours and a touch of barnyard and cedar. A very feminine style, without big extraction but solid fruit. A big step forward in style and quality. Drink now or keep for 2 to 4 years.
