The Chester|Kidder Red gets an extra year in barrel and bottle prior to release. It's 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Syrah and 17% Petit Verdot, yielding a big bruiser of a red that is oaky and tannic, with black cherry and cassis under substantial flavors of char, smoke and toast. Paul Gregutt

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.
