This Margaret River Shiraz-dominant blend shows off plenty of regional character. It smells like the scrubby vegetation growing in the dunes beside the Indian Ocean. It's also a little soapy, as Shiraz from these parts can sometimes be, but is spicy, too, with red fruit and blueberries, florals and pipe tobacco. There's a firm grip of savory, tight-grained tannins and a satiny mouthfeel, and this retains a relatively cool-climate feel. Christina Pickard

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.
