This is a stunning wine that's loaded with flavor and complexity. The vibrant bouquet boasts assertive, fruity aromas of kirsch, blueberry and blackberry, alongside notes of iris, dark chocolate and a touch of sweet tobacco. The palate is full and ripe, with powerful, dense black-fruit and berry flavors that are laced with a hint of cream and sweet cocoa. Firm yet well-integrated tannins grip the long finish. Decadent now, but should hold nicely through 2017. Lauren Buzzeo

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.
