Santa Luz 2009 Gran Corte Red (Colchagua Valley)
Graphite, molasses, foresty notes and briny leather are the prime aromas on this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Carmenère and Petit Verdot. The mouthfeel is layered and fairly deep, with a firm structure and strong tannins. Roasted black-fruit flavors come with pepper and toast, while the finish offers even more pepper, olive and tobacco notes. Michael Schachner

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.
