A strange aroma of multi-grain bread and caraway rides underneath vanilla, black cherry and anise. The palate is stuck on ripe raspberry and cherry flavors, with touches of vanilla and sweet spice and pummeling tannins that lack structure. There is a sour candy tang on the finish, with mildly grippy, sandy tannins and a sprinkle of pepper spice on the end. Fiona Adams

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.
