Smoked meats and earthy black-cherry aromas make for a pleasantly rugged nose on this blend of 40% Primitivo, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Merlot. The flavors are cohesive on the palate, where hickory smoke wraps around cherries and herbs, with a strong tannic framing. 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.
