Guardian Peak 2005 SMG Red (Western Cape)
This is unique not only because it's the first such blend to be produced in South Africa (Syrah-Mourvèdre-Grenache) but also because of its exotic palate of dark chocolate, plum and spice flavors. The wine is fun and vibrant but also elegant and complex enough to stand on its own in the glass, and it still exhibits the measured restraint for which the French, and many South African wines, are known. Imported by Terlato Wines International. Susan Kostrzewa

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.
