Winemaker Sean Boyd made his name at Woodinville Wine Cellars in part by his Little Bear Creek wine that was one of the best values in the state. This is his new winery's iteration. Made of 50% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, 20% Malbec and 5% Syrah, the wine has plentiful aromas of coffee grounds, dried herb, dark chocolate and cherry, which are followed by well-balanced flavors that show density, length and plenty of structure that's pleasingly chewy. It's thoroughly enchanting. Sean P. Sullivan

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.
