Few table wines are made in the solera style, whereby vintages are blended together to create a more harmonious whole. Here is that rare solera red, the fifth shot this winery has taken at the Crazy Horse. And it's a fine effort that features spicy and sweet aromas, ripe strawberry fruit, and lots of toasty, charred oak. Warning: Airing helps tame the overt oak, especially on the finish. ¯M.S.
