This blend of Monastrell and Petit Verdot is dark purple in color, with reduced, rubbery aromas of black olive and black fruits. The palate shows some heat, hard tannins and tartaric burn, while blackberry and cherry cough drop flavors finish short and a bit rough. Classify this a typical amped-up Levante red and proceed with caution. 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.
