90pointsGuelbenzu 1999 Lautus Red (Navarra)

This mixed bag of Tempranillo, Merlot, Cabernet and Garnacha sings a sweet tune. The nose is powerful; there's an early punch of oak then dill, earth and red fruit. Clearly this wine benefited from some healthy sunshine in '99. It's eminently ripe and full of cassis and black-plum flavors. With some marzipan and bitter chocolate on the finish, it racks up plenty of positives. Michael Schachner
