A very dark color, tons of ripe fruit aromas and abundant black-fruit flavors give a lot of wallop to this full-bodied but not overly sweet or fat Rhône-style blend. Ripe blackberry, stewed plum and a touch of smoke hang on a big structure of firm tannins and good acidity. It will be best after 2019, but it's difficult not to drink up at this price. Jim Gordon

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.
