Herbal aromas of oregano, marjoram and bay decorate the core of charred black plum and seared meat on the nose of this blend of 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Petite Sirah and 20% Syrah. There's a rustic edge to the palate, with those dried herbs layered throughout a ripe core of blackberry, as cracked pepper provides spice. 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.
