I accidentally refrigerated this red wine. Voila! It's great cold. Just goes to show that the conventional wisdom doesn't always hold. A blend of Shiraz and Cab Franc, the wine is rich in cherry-filled chocolate, with a dash of lavender, licorice and pepper, and the finish is dry. Easy to find, with 25,000 cases produced. Ironstone is really doing a great job in making varietally true, inexpensive wines.

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.
