The 2009 Cali is half Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, and the rest Sangiovese. An interesting wine aromatically, with sharp scents of herb, mint and pine needle, it's well-blended, smooth and balanced, with the herbal nature of the fruit on full display. Paul Gregutt

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.
