From its inky black color, you can tell that this is a big wine, and one sip confirms that impression. This is dry, full bodied and tannic, with explosive blackberry and raisin flavors as well as an edge of crisped beef. It's a little rustic, and the sweet fruit suggests pairing it with barbecue and roasted meat.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
