A heavy coating of charred oak and coffee grounds rests atop blackberry and cassis scents. While this is jammy and thick, core acidity and lemony oak notes foster balance. Cassis and blackberry flavors finish peppery, spicy and oaky, with a lasting note of chocolate. This is 75% Monastrell with 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. 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.
