Bota Real 2011 Gran Reserva Garnacha-Syrah (Terra Alta)
A jumbled nose includes aromas of sweet plastic, soap, creamy oak and candied red fruit. On the palate, this Garnacha-Syrah blend feels grabby and a bit gummy. Foxy berry flavors include a phenolic hint of green, while this is short and choppy 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.
