Smoked berry, soy and crumbled flower aromas show on the nose of this blend of 45% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petite Verdot and 10% Grenache. It's clean and focused if still young on the palate, where brawny black currant, lavender and allspice flavors are wrapped in grippy tannins. 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.
