The flavors could be a little drier on this blend of Bordeaux varieties and Petite Sirah. It's ripe and forward in stewed blackberries and cherries. Yet there's an impressive complexity that fascinates, and the finish is dry, with oak barrels bringing a smoky, caramelized richness. The end result is a near-perfect wine for barbecued steak.

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.
