Black-plum paste, blackberry-syrup, dried violets and concentrated jasmine aromas show on the nose of this 50-50 split between Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The mouthfeel is thick and rich, with floral flavors of lilac and jasmine yet a dense core of elderberry jam as well. It is a solid choice for hearty sipping. 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.
