Dark black-currant and baking-spice aromas float atop a subtle sense of rugged charred meat and tar on the compelling nose of this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Mourvèdre and 4% Syrah. Tar and charcoal flavors show on the sip alongside dark-purple fruits and flowers, with a touch of dried herbs. Still young, but it will age gracefully. Matt Kettmann

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.
