The bouquet offers subtle traces of minerals/shale, dried red fruits, and white raisins with deeper aromas of white chocolate, peanut butter, lemongrass, and wool. The alcohol, acidity, and fruit components merge seamlessly at palate entry; midpalate finds flavors of dried herbs, oaky vanillin, pork sausage, dark caramel, molasses, and hard cheese-like rancio. Concludes with semisweet notes of cocoa and honey. Luscious and mature. 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.
