Obvious 2017 No. 01 Dark & Bold Red (Paso Robles)
This blend of 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 25% Tannat and 13% Malbec, which professes to be 100% vegan, starts with pretty if simple aromas of crushed berries, earth and herb on the nose. Fresh berries kick off the sip as well, which picks up oregano, potting-soil and savory beef-char flavors toward the finish. 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.
