For this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah and 10% Petit Verdot, all the fruit comes from Stillwater Creek Vineyard. The wine offers notes of mocha, coffee, woodspice, herbs and dark cherry. It's palate-coating and full in feel, with verve to the blackberry and cranberry flavors that are backed by a firm grip of tannins that need some time in the bottle to come into their own. Sean P.

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.
