Dense aromas of black currant, crushed black rocks, scarlet rose and cappuccino show on the nose of this lavish blend of 53% Cabernet Sauvignon and 47% Syrah, which is aged in 85% new oak. Rich yet very dry on the palate, this wine offers flavors of rustic herb, lava rock, charred tobacco and Luxardo cherry. 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.
