This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and both varieties got enormously ripe. The wine floods the mouth with crushed, jammy blackberries and plums, sprinkled with cocoa powder, cinnamon, anise and black pepper, accented with smoky new oak. It's a flashy, dramatic wine made in the modern style.

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.
