Aromas of blackberries, plums, and black cherries meld with suggestions of pepper, earth, and balsamic on the nose. Flavors of currant, blackberry, and dark cherry combine with notes of spice, balsamic, and anise on the palate. Smooth tannins and dark concentrated flavors make lamb a fine paring for it.

Year's Best Rhones, Best Buys, This is big and oaky, with a thick wrapping of chocolaty fruit on the considerable tannins. Despite its size, it retains a cool feel, the acidity flowing through it like a breeze. An ambitious wine, it needs time and steakhouse fare.

Best Buy. This is waxy and broad, with earth and herbal notes curbing the sweetness of the fruit. Give it a light chill for a goat cheese salad.

Lush and giving, this doesn’t have much structure, but it has plenty of sweet black raspberry fruit and violet scents. For blue-cheese burgers.
