Black currant and blackberry-pie aromas make for a joyous entry to this blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Syrah and 15% Petite Sirah, which also shows new leather on the nose. It's generous on the palate, with rich boysenberry, snappy pink-peppercorn spice and a dusting of wild thyme, framed by balanced acidity and tannins. 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.
