FLORA SPRINGS Merlot Napa Valley 2013
90 points, $30
Fresh and lively, this is the sort of Merlot that made the wine so popular in California. Aromas of red currant and spicy cinnamon lead to supple, rich flavors of black cherry, toffee and grilled herb. Drink now through 2022. 4,722 cases made. —Tim Fish

E. GUIGAL Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010
92 points, $59
A solid, brick-house version, with roasted mesquite and alder notes providing the frame while the steeped plum, raspberry and black currant fruit core waits in reserve. A charcoal accent pins down the finish. Should open steadily with cellaring, though this will likely maintain a pleasantly rugged feel. Best from 2017 through 2025. 5,000 cases imported. —James Molesworth
