Polished aromas of dark yet savory fruits feature dried fig, black olive, scorched berry, black pepper and cocoa on the umami-laden nose of this blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 6% Graciano. The cured meat aspect comes through on the palate, where charred fruit and a hint of lilac flavor come through on the midpalate. Grippy tannins ensure a long evolution. Drink now through 2033.

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.
