This blend of 50% Cabernet Franc and 50% Zinfandel shows pepper, plump purple flowers, candied berries and Concord grape on the nose. There is piquant boysenberry fruit on the sip, as well as candied violets and lilacs, but the wine still tastes very young and needs more resolution. 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.
