Aromas of candied blackberry, thyme and a bit of gravel make for a compelling nose in this blend of 65% Grenache, 30% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Rounded and dark yet lively in character, flavors of pomegranate, black cherry and black raspberry are framed by zippy acidity and lifted by a pinch of dried herbs. 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.
