Père Ami 2016 Red (Umpqua Valley)
This new label, produced by Willamette Valley Vineyards, honors founder Jim Bernau's father. An equal mix of Grenache, Tempranillo and Syrah, it opens with a toasty nose and pretty raspberry fruit. The blend works well, effectively matching the three grapes with none dominating. Paul Gregutt

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.
