It must be challenging to make nontraditional red blends that stand out in a lineup, but the French-born Fabre brothers are doing just that. This blend of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Syrah and 17% Carignan starts with aromas of oregano, marjoram, baked earth and black plums. The palate picks up the herbal tones, then delivers dark-chocolate, smoked beef and black-currant flavors. 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.
