Blueberry, currant and smoky oak mark this wine, which provides additional highlights of black pepper and cedar. Generous in tannin and structure, this is the first vintage of this Karen Cakebread-made wine. It combines fruit from four vineyards across the valley, from Coombsville to Calistoga, including Shafer in Stags Leap. Drink now through 2022. Virginie Boone

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.
