Deep and dark aromas of berry, plum, pie spice and lavender show on the nose of this blend of 57% Zinfandel from the Derby Vineyard and 43% Petite Sirah from Laura's Vineyard. The palate is lavish in rich fruit and spice flavors, but there is a firm tension as well as light violet and crushed gravel elements. 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.
