This is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, and 5% undisclosed varieties. The alcohol is a refreshingly low 13.5%. The flavors are of black currants, cassis, softened cola and leather, with plenty of peppery spices. Should hold in the bottle for a few years, but fine to drink now, after a few hours of decanting to let it breathe.

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.
