This is mostly Tempranillo, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot comprising the rest of the blend. The nose is liquorous and the wine dark and hot—to some tasters it may seem overripe. There seems to be some residual sugar also. Flavors are sweet black cherry and light prune, along with baking spice, hints of tobacco and licorice. Though 14.3% is the listed alcohol, it feels bigger and finishes with some heat and astringent tannins. Paul Gregutt

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples.

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
