An unusual blend of Grenache and Syrah, with a splash of Roussanne and Viognier, this wine is massively rich in cherry and blackberry pie, caramelized oak, vanilla and cinnamon spice flavors. The addition of those few drops of white varieties brings brisk acidity and a tang of citrus and flowers. Very fine now, and should hold through 2014.

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.
