Frenchie Winery 2014 Frenchington Red (California)
Flavors like blackberry jam and black pepper make a nice match in this full-bodied broad-textured wine made mostly from Bordeaux varietals with 22% Petite Sirah added. It tastes rich and smooth, and is concentrated enough for a lingering finish. The ornate label features a surprising yet alarming portrait of George Washington with the face of a French bulldog that belongs to winery owner Jean-Charles Boisset. Jim Gordon

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples.

When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
