For a nonvintage wine, this is exciting. It is full bodied, inky in color, concentrated and potent in aroma and ripe and firmly tannic in the mouth. Notes of blackberry jam and cocoa nibs in the aroma are followed by black cherry and molasses on the palate, while a densely tannic texture keeps the wine wrapped tightly. Best after 2023. Jim Gordon

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.
