Sunstone 2017 Villa Sole Red (Santa Ynez Valley)
Concentrated crystallized blackberry aromas meet with charred wood and brighter red flowers on the nose of this blend of 54% Merlot, 32% Cabernet Franc and 14% Syrah. Grippy tannins frame the sip, where crisp and bright red fruits are kissed by oak and toast. 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.
