The nose is forceful and strong, with char and the dark-fruit aromas that Shiraz and Malbec are known for. The palate pops along, propelled by healthy acids and moderate tannins. And the finish is fairly plush before it fades away quietly. A little more depth and length and we'd really be singing this wine's praises. As is, it's a rock-solid blend. Michael Schachner

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.
