With 50% each Pinot Noir from the Central Coast and Nero d'Avola from the Sierra Foothills, this is not the typical California blend. Fresh raspberry-sorbet and ripe cherry aromas lead into a tightly tannic palate, where the structure holds bright red-fruit, dark dried fruit and forest-herb 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.
