A Rhône blend that captures the wild exuberance of Châteauneuf. It's got berry and herb flavors and is very dry and a little tannic. It's not a sophisticated wine. It could use some grace, but it may improve in two or three years. A mixture of Carignan, Syrah, Valdiguié and Grenache.

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.
