Though pairing Syrah with Cabernet Sauvignon is not uncommon, it is rare to see so much of the cool-climate character of the former grape lead this blend. Aromas of smoked kelp, chopped herb and green peppercorn meet with light plum on the nose. There's ripe strawberry and cherry flavor to the sip, where raw and seared lamb and peppercorn flavors align. 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.
