Alpine strawberry, grape Jolly Rancher, lilac and violet aromas all come to the fore in this blend of 68% Syrah and 32% Pinot Noir, which barely shows its decade of age yet. The palate starts very dry and then releases tangy red fruits, rose hips and baking spice, with a lift of mint toward the finish. 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.
