This is always a divisive bottling, pitting cool-climate lovers of earthy funk against those seeking fruitier Syrah and this vintage goes extreme. Aromas of petrol and singed boar hair reflect a gas station vibe in the nose, and the palate keeps the theme alive, bringing a tiny amount of roasted fruit to this raw meat party. Matt Kettmann

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.
