This was a hot vintage, but this beautifully elegant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot boasts enormous purity of fruit and deep layers of penetration and intensity. It is a more fruit-forward version of the wine, but it does offer drying minerals and bright fruit flavors with tight tannins to keep it balanced.

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.
