Aromas of egg nog, gingery spices and rich blackberry fruit power the nose on this blend of 46% Zinfandel, 26% Merlot, 24% Petite Sirah, 2% Grenache and 2% Syrah. The mouthfeel is velvety and the flavors are quite fun: black fruit, grilled pork fat and a nuanced 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.
