Aromas like maple syrup and fresh-cut oak sawdust set the stage for a powerfully oaky, smoky, spicy flavor and finish for this full-bodied, firm-textured wine. It's very dramatic and extreme in style, so some drinkers will love it and others will find it over the top. 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.
