Cola and black-cherry aromas show on the nose of this blend of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, along with hints of oak and cocoa. The broad palate offers baked red cherry, toasty oak, star anise and licorice spice, with tension and acidity rising into the caramel-laced finish. Matt Kettmann

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.
