This is a sharp, tasty, bright and spicy young red wine, still not entirely knit together. It opens with peppery spice, citrus skin and very tart cranberry fruit, then fills out with chewy tannins and more flavors inflected with leaf and stem. It's got decent length and a structure that seems set up for short-term cellaring. Paul Gregutt

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.
