$15 to $30

Aug. 02, 2014: BARBOURSVILLE Cabernet Franc Virginia Reserve 2011 (87 points, $25)

Black currant, licorice and bacon flavors mingle in this fresh, lean red. Lively acidity and light, firm tannins keep this focused. A touch earthy, but the racy, juicy character brings you back for another sip. Drink now through 2016. 3,162 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

More than $30

Aug. 02, 2014: MOVIA Brda Lunar 2008 (92 points, $45)

Deeply golden in color, this has the floral- and yeast-laced nose of a fine Lambic beer, with more delicacy on the palate. Subtle notes of macerated apricot, ground clove, dried orange peel and toasted almond are well-integrated with the rapierlike acidity and light tannins. Offers a long, saline-tinged finish. Ribolla. Drink now through 2023. 100 cases made. —Alison Napjus
