Koerner 2017 The Clare Red (Clare Valley)
The boundary-pushing Koerner brothers hit yet another home run with this small-batch, characterful red blend (Cab Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Cab Franc and Malbec). A heady combo of wild strawberry, orange rind, cherry preserves, hoisin sauce, tomato leaf and minerals, it's light and bright, the tangy, silky fruit puckering and crunching, caressed by soft, fine tannins and finishing on a red berry and spice note. Drink slightly chilled as the seasons change. Christina Pickard

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.
