Spicy and saucy on the nose, with some leather and cherry mixed in. Shows attractive cherry and tobacco flavors, and they are supported by ripe, pure tannins. This is a tight, ripe wine that is drinkable now and should hold for another couple of years at the very least. Imported by Five Star Imports. 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.
