2006 Taurasi (Best Buy) A wine of stature and grace, this has the deep red color of a ripe plum and a transparent mist of flavor perfuming its fruit. You might find scents of hen of the woods mushrooms, or roses and garden soil, of lasting red spice and deeper tones of red fruit. The tannins are lean and vertical, held firmly in place by acidity, set for years of development ahead. —Joshua Greene
