Attractive cedar, tobacco and menthol aromas lead to very tightly wrapped fruit flavors in this full-bodied, resolutely tannic wine. It has much less Tempranillo than the last two vintages and shows a different profile. It will need a long time for the mouthfeel to soften, so pair it with meaty proteins. 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.
