The Hellion is 42% Primitivo, one-third Petite Sirah and one-quarter Zinfandel. It's a ripe, round and fruity blend with appealing fruit flavors of mulberry, blackberry and cassis. The tannins are a bit earthy, with suggestions of stem, and the finish comes up slightly bitter. Paul Gregutt

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.
