Koyle 2011 Auma Los Lingues Red (Colchagua Valley)
Aromas of hickory and woodsmoke transition to maple, baked blackberry and cedar upon airing. This five-grape blend is led by Cabernet Sauvignon, but Carmenère and Malbec are major players as well. Expect a full-force palate with big tannins and layering. Flavors of hickory, savory berry and barbecue notes match the nose, while the finish is roasted, toasty and meaty in nature. Hold until 2016, then drink through 2022. 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.
