The dark purple color suggests a younger wine, but one sniff and you know it spent a lot of time in oak. Toast and cedar aromas predominate, but underneath them lies black-cherry fruit and a firm iron-mineral tang. Long, dry finish. Give it 3–5 years for the oak to integrate before drinking it over the next 10. Joe Czerwinski

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.
