This wine shows a lot of purity, balance and quality. A ripe, jammy nose is full of blackberry and cassis, while this blend of Monastrell, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon is big on the palate but jolted by wiry acidity. Flavors of spicy black fruits offer a touch of chocolate prior to a mild finish. This red from southeast Spain shoots and scores. Michael Schachner

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.
