A blend of Cabernet, Tempranillo and Zinfandel; you've got to hand it to Nepenthe for experimenting with new varieties. Smells cool-climate, with nuances of eucalyptus/fresh herb, and taut, cherry fruit. Soft and dry in the mouth, where red plum and tangy oak flavors are the key players. It's a nice red wine, but one that just hasn't hit its stride yet.

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.
