This dessert variety, which has a long history in California, is made the old-fashioned way, with very sweet, intense flavors of cherries, apricots and white chocolate baked into a sweet tart, with a vanilla and butter crust. It has good enough acidity to balance, and a richly smooth, creamy texture.

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.
