Jan. 26, 2015: BODEGAS SAN ISIDRO Monastrell Jumilla Gémina 2011 (86 points, $12)

Tart cherry, leafy, licorice and loamy flavors mingle in this lean, firm red. The savory notes give way to pretty berry and floral accents on the finish. Focused and fresh. Drink now through 2017. 40,000 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

$15 to $30

Jan. 26, 2015: ADELSHEIM Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2013 (88 points, $19)

Light and refreshing, with a hint of grapefruit adding to the apple and pear flavors. Drink now. 14,738 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

More than $30

Jan. 26, 2015: FATTORIA DI FELSINA Toscana Berardenga Fontalloro 2011 (94 points, $62)

A firm, linear red, featuring black cherry, black currant, leather, tobacco and tar notes on a dense frame. This persistent version builds to a long fruit-, spice- and mineral-tinged aftertaste. Combines power and finesse, and should age beautifully. Sangiovese. Best from 2017 through 2027. 3,750 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
