Garnet is Saintsbury's lighter pinot noir, but this is no lightweight in terms of flavor appeal. It's a succulent, medium-bodied red wine with pure, vibrant pinot noir flavors, including black cherry, wild berries and earth. Garnet has consistently been a top value over the years, but the winery considers its 2009 one of its best ever. I concur. — Michael Dresser 2009 Saintsbury Garnet Pinot Noir From: Carneros, Calif. Price: $20 Serve with: Tuna steak, pork, veal

Saintsbury's Garnet bottling of California pinot noir has been a delicious light red wine for many vintages now, but the 1994 vintage takes it a step beyond. An extra measure of concentration gives it extra length and makes it the best Garnet to date. With its generous fruit and racy acidity, it makes for an excellent restaurant wine. It's a perfect wine for bridging the gap when one diner is having fish and the other a red meat.

Leaping lizards! Velvet is back for men this fall. No, not lounge-lizard wear, but beautiful silk- and cotton-based velvet blazers in colors like black, chocolate brown and garnet. "Velvet blazers are being tipped as one of the season's hottest items for men -- for fashion-conscious men, that is," says David Wolfe of the Doneger Group, which forecasts fashion trends. In New York, velvet blazers are selling like crazy, in spite of the warm weather. Stephen Cardino, men's fashion director for Macy's East, says most of the store's stock is being bought at this point by 16- to 24-year-olds who wear them clubbing.

Garnet "Buddy" Troyer, a horse trainer who early in his career prepared thoroughbreds at Baltimore County's Sagamore Farm and regularly exercised the legendary racehorse Native Dancer, died of cancer Friday at Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa. The former Glyndon resident was 70. Born in Baltimore, he was raised on the grounds of the Greenspring Hunt Club, where his father tended the hounds. A 1953 Franklin High School graduate, he served in the Air Force in North Africa. He then became a caretaker and ran the horse breeding stable at Piney Grove, the Butler-area estate of Elizabeth Nichols, and worked for well-known Maryland horsemen Henry Clark and Harry A. Love before becoming the farm trainer at Sagamore -where Native Dancer was standing at stud.
