Aromas of bright cherry, strawberry and red plum are link up with cocoa powder, hickory smoked meat and sprinkles of pepper and rosemary. Acidity is tangy doling out ripe plum, cherry and pomegranate on the palate, with vanilla, dried thyme and rosemary tones. Tight fine-grained tannins grip the palate through to the finish of black cherry, cocoa powder and long-lingering tangy plum. Fiona Adams

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.
