The nose of this hearty blend of Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese and Grenache shows lively violets as well as a caramelized blackberry touch, with peppercorns, dried herbs and tobacco adding spice. It's viscous yet bone dry on the palate, with lavish cherry and strawberry flavors as well as baked soil and gravel-laced minerality. 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.
