Apr. 16, 2014: JEAN-LUC COLOMBO Côtes du Rhône White Les Abeilles 2012 (88 points, $13)

Enticing, with caressing notes of green almond, pear and verbena, backed by a racy hint of salted butter on the finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

$15 to $30

Apr. 16, 2014: TOMMASI Cabernet Sauvignon Toscana Poggio al Tufo 2011 (91 points, $18)

Intense aromas and flavors of black currant, cherry and licorice are augmented by spice in this fragrant red. Supple and balanced, with vibrant acidity and well-integrated tannins on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2023. 1,500 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

More than $30

Apr. 16, 2014: MICHEL GAY & FILS Beaune Toussaints Vieilles Vignes 2010 (93 points, $62)

Rich and almost opulent, with cherry, black currant, spice and mineral notes. Lively acidity keeps this in check, marshaling the flavors to a lingering aftertaste of fruit, spice and mineral. Best from 2015 through 2027. 25 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
