BODEGAS FRANCO-ESPAÑOLAS Tempranillo Rioja Royal 2012
86 points, $10
This fleshy red offers plum, tar, beefy and licorice flavors, with gentle tannins supporting the thick texture. Expressive, but a bit clumsy and clipped on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 50,000 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

$15 to $30

May. 28, 2015
FREI BROTHERS Chardonnay Russian River Valley Reserve 2013
88 points, $20
Lots of spice, creamy oak and vanilla notes join vibrant pear, melon, honeysuckle and floral scents, ending smooth and graceful. Drink now. 135,000 cases made. —James Laube

More than $30

G. ROUMIER Morey-St.-Denis Clos de la Bussière 2012
93 points, $160
Opulent and dense, with vivid acidity driving the black cherry, plum and spice flavors. This picks up a stony note on the long, muscular finish. Impressive, but needs time. Best from 2017 through 2030. 159 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
