"Raspberry, cinnamon and light vanilla aromas follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a medium finish. Delicate and polished. Best after 2012. 4,580 cases made. –JS" (WS)

"Readers looking for high quality Pessac Leognan at a bargain price should check out Rouillac, a chateau on the rise. Smoky, cedary, charcoal notes intermixed with copious black cherry and currant fruit jump from the glass of this stylish, complex, medium-bodied wine, which has terrific fruit intensity, superb purity, and a long, lush, silky finish. Drink it over the next 7-8 years." (WA)
