Initial sniffings don't discover much; aeration and swirling rouse subtle aromas of nougat, flax, crushed almond and linseed oil. Palate entry is astonishingly delicate and sweet; at midpalate the flavor does a slow burn on the tongue as ripe, fruity tastes of baked apple, road tar, grapefruit and buttered popcorn make it all worth it. Ends banana-like and prickly on the back of the tongue. P.P.

What Is Blind Tasting?

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.
