A blend of Bordeaux and Rhône varieties, this is a dry, somewhat rugged wine, whose best feature is fruit. Blackberries, cherries, plums, even cranberries and cocoa show up in the complex flavors. There's a tannic, acidic streak that makes it a little tough, though.

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.
