Cortes de Cima 2001 Red (Alentejo)
Jammy blackberries blend with vanilla-scented oak in this rather New World-styled wine. It's supple and fully ripe, with smooth tannins and very berry fruit. Might pass for a Zin in a blind tasting. Drink now–2008. Joe Czerwinski

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.
