Benessere 2014 Phenomenon Red (St. Helena)
A hearty, rustic and well-made blend, this combines 39% estate-grown Merlot, 26% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Sangiovese. It tastes of blackberry and blueberry cobbler and dusty plum, with light touches of mocha that give it additional richness among its soft layers. Virginie Boone

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.
