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

Jul. 30, 2014: VIGNERONS DE CARACTÈRE Vacqueyras Collection du Rhône 2012 (89 points, $24)

Alluring toasted wood spice, anise and fruitcake notes lead the way, followed by steeped plum, blackberry and black cherry fruit. Spice accents line the finish, with a hint of singed cedar peeking in. Shows good length and definition. Drink now through 2016. 60,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

Jul. 29, 2014: LA BRACCESCA Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2010 (91 points, $25)
