Peloton 2016 Criterium Red (Paso Robles)
Rounded blackberry and black-currant aromas are lifted by wisteria and violet aromas on the nose of this blend of 50% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petite Sirah. It's quite dry on the palate, offering more violet and lilac flavors along with Concord grape and a savory streak of dried herbs, kelp and wood. 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.
