Solid as a soldier and convincing despite its unconventional components, which include Pinot Noir Syrah, among others. It's probably more of a wine for now than for storing; the palate is ripe and supple, with a lot of extract, cola and brown sugar. Tannic but not hard. Imported by Moët Hennessy USA.

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.
