Château Rollan de By Médoc Grand Vin De 2010 Bordeaux, $28.79-$31.99, 91 points, appears as a truly dense black currant red with an obligatory water-like rim.
A toasty cinnamon plum makes for an uncomplicated aroma.
the near full bodied red wine has an early palate sleekness that is quickly over-whelmed with biting acidity, strident, persistent tannin, and with relief, rich flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, tart pomegranate, and tangy cranberry with hints of mint, licorice, and savory.
Finishing on the tart and tangy with mouth coating menthol, just a bit of smothered pepper, and heat (14% alcohol), I was not deterred nor dismayed, but this is another red wine for the cellar where it will no doubt improve.
