A Bordeaux blend. Starts out with hot-country Cabernet aromas of ripe plums, cassis and asphalt. The fruit is ripe, almost overripe, with raisiny flavors that turn hot and slightly bitter on the finish. Tannins are ultrasoft, and it's not very oaky. Primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, with Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

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.
