The dark-berry aromas on this blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Syrah and 14% Petit Verdot quickly slide into savory pastrami and roast beef scents. There is firm tension to the palate, where star anise and vanilla coat the black-plum and cassis flavors. 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.
