Made in honor of the city of Walla Walla's 150th anniversary, this so-called sesquicentennial blend includes 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Carmenère and 5% Sangiovese. It's innovative, but unless you really like the vegetal aspects of Carmenère, you may find that the dried leaf, bark and forest floor flavors are overwhelming. Along with all of those notes comes a core of strawberry preserves. 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.
