Jul. 25, 2014: YALUMBA Viognier South Australia The Y Series 2013 (89 points, $12)

Lively and focused, with spice, floral, pear and lime curd flavors on a sleek frame. Finely tuned. Drink now through 2017. 4,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

$15 to $30

Jul. 25, 2014: BODEGA MATARROMERA Toro Cyan Crianza 2010 (90 points, $26)

Espresso and licorice notes give this firm red a slightly austere character, but the solid structure and polished texture are promising. A core of plum and black olive rounds this out. Drink now through 2025. 15,900 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

More than $30

Jul. 25, 2014: KLEIN CONSTANTIA Vin de Constance Constantia 2008 (94 points, $69)

Gorgeous apricot, warmed peach, dried mango and maple notes lead the way in this unctuous dessert wine, with crystalized ginger, green tea and dried blood orange flavors filling in through the finish. Has enough well-embedded acidity to carry it all easily, finishing with impressive range and cut. Drink now through 2030. 2,950 cases made. —James Molesworth
