The earthy, woodsy aromas give way to a plummy, sweet wine dominated by mountain-fruit characteristics. What starts out hard and tannic really opens up after an hour or so. Very persistent and warm, it's a blend of 55% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Michael Schachner

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.
