This red blend of Syrah, Zinfandel, Grenache and Nebbiolo is such a screaming good deal anyone wanting to make the point that California wine can be affordable and incredibly well made should buy a case just to proselytize to friends. It's got bright raspberry, cherry and cranberry highlights as well as the meatiness one can appreciate in a fine Syrah. Well-integrated, smooth, clean and balanced, it's the whole package in an under $10 price. Virginie Boone

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.
