Starts promising, with its dark color and interesting aromas of violets, black cherry and cinnamon. But it's rather heavy and tannic on the tongue, where overbaked black fruit controls the flavor profile. All in all it's fully stuffed and chewy before turning bitter on the finish. Michael Schachner

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.
