Canary Islands wine? Yes indeed, with appealing black cherry fruit, dark chocolate and tar aromas and flavors wrapped in firm, toasty oak. This 65% Listan Negro and 35% Negramoll blend rides a lean frame, similar in weight and texture to a mainstream Rioja or Tuscan red. Finishes long and smooth with even, well-dispersed tannins. Tasty now, and should hold or improve through 2004. —M.M.

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.
