There's a spicy, peppery edge to the nose of this wine, giving focus to the tight core of bramble berries and currants that rides beneath. A blend of Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, the palate is lithe yet energetic in feel, driven by equal measures of tart mixed berries, dried herbs and crushed black pepper. Crushed velvet tannins lend a seductive vibe, making this ready to be enjoyed in the near term. Alexander Peartree

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.
