Shaved dark-chocolate, cedar and black-cherry aromas show on the nose of this blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah and 20% Sangiovese from the Santa Rosa Valley, a region that connects Los Angeles to Ventura County. Lighter bodied than expected on the palate, the bottling offers strawberry, cherry tomato, peppercorn and oregano flavors, and is still quite young. Matt Kettmann

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.
