Nearly opaque in the glass, this blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Petit Verdot and 10% Syrah entices the nose with rich yet somehow reserved aromas of violet, caramel and charred berry. It's thick and dense on the palate, with lavish tannins that are creamy and tense, framing elderberry, dark-cocoa, espresso-bean and floral flavors. Drink now through 2030. Matt Kettmann

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.
