The 2011 Riot (a play on Trio) is half Sangiovese and one quarter each Mourvèdre and Grenache. It's been amped up in 2011, with the alcohol pushing near a heady 15%. Spicy and superripe fruit packs some heat, along with flavors of red and purple fruits. The finish turns a bit chalky and tart. Paul Gregutt

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.
