An amazing wine, made from old vines near Olivet Lane. The grapes were mistaken for Zinfandel for decades and sold as such, until recently identified as Petite Sirah, Valdepenas, Mourvèdre and Alicante Bouschet. This is as authentic a field blend as I have ever seen—and the best. Impossible to exaggerrate the purity, depth and concentration. Magnificent, lush texture, fabulous tannins, this wine is world class in every sense.

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.
