This blend of 83% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Syrah shows dark, roasted black plums and berries as well as charred beef and green peppercorns, proving both very ripe yet still a tad green on the nose. It's thick on the palate with elderberry and black-currant flavors, wound together by rigid tannins, and finishing on caramel, vanilla and pepper. 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.
