This is roughly one-third each of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, and their individual contributions work harmoniously to craft a dark, meaty wine with cassis, licorice, smoke and espresso flavors. Suggestions of black tea and black coffee continue the thread, until the fruit trails off and the finish fades, a bit shorter than expected. Paul Gregutt

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.
