A real easy-drinking Syrah fairly stuffed full of fruit. A bouquet of berry, raisin, cinnamon, and mint opens to a mouthful of ripe, jammy dark-berry fruit. Finishes round, with mild tannins, earth and licorice notes. Best Buy.

What Is Blind Tasting?

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.
