This blend of 74% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 8% Tempranillo and 2% Alicante Bouschet is driven by a cigar-box aroma on the nose, with thyme, peppercorn, dark plum and strawberry in the background. It's tightly wound on the palate, with bright acidity that rises into the finish of black currant and clove. 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.
