This is a very rich kitchen-sink blend of 24% Syrah, 22% Grenache, 22% Merlot, 11% Mourvèdre, 11% Tempranillo, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, starting with aromas of blackberry jam, black-plum juice, caramel and cola. There's a blast of acid at the tip of the sip and a firm tannic structure, which envelops the cola, fudge, caramel and dark-fig flavors. 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.
