Almost opaque in the glass, this hearty blend of 46% Tempranillo, 29% Malbec, 20% Petite Sirah and 5% Zinfandel begins with a burly nose of beef slathered in blueberry compote. The brawny qualities excel on the palate as well, which is full of rugged, leathery game, charred berry and dried mushroom flavors. 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.
