Black plum, lilac and black pepper make for a deep and rich yet dry and savory combination on the nose of this blend of 67% Grenache, 18% Syrah, 14% Graciano and 1% Clairette Blanche. It's well wound on the sip, offering black-pepper, cassis, black-cherry and star anise flavors, all wrapped in chiseled tannins. 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.
