This Mediterranean blend brings together varietals that create a wine greater than the sum of its parts. While excellent now, this smooth, moderately tannic wine will continue to improve in the bottle. 100% estate produced.

The particulars of this estate-grown blend change annually, but it remains smooth and deeply-fruited, a tasty riot of loganberries, marionberries, blackberries and more. Juicy and fresh, with spot-on tannins, it’s flat-out delicious and a stunning value. Editors’ Choice. —P.G.
