Though this blend of 75% Syrah, 15% Grenache and 10% Sangiovese is somewhat of a leftover estate wine, it succeeds on so many hedonistic levels. Dark and penetrating aromas of hickory, blackberry, soy, pepper and chocolate-chip cookie on the nose lead into a rich and ripe palate of black cherry, cassis and violet. Feathery tannins hold it together. 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.
