Always a reliable budget bottle, this version of The Jack draws upon some well-known Walla Walla and Columbia Valley vineyards (notably Lewis!) for its fruit. In the blend are small amounts of Grenache and Mourvèdre. Ten percent new oak adds just the right toasty touch. It's a supple, clean, varietally-true wine with plenty of purple fruits and hints of bacon fat. The Jack has been a popular value brand since Saviah introduced it over a decade ago and now includes a large number of different blends and varietals. This Syrah is especially good for cold weather holiday fare, including the dreaded Thanksgiving turkey.

2151 cases; 14.5%; $18 (Columbia Valley)
