Apr. 01, 2014: MARCHESI DE' FRESCOBALDI Chianti Rufina Nipozzano Riserva 2010 (92 points, $24)

Black cherry, spice, tobacco and earth flavors prevail in this dense red. The tannins verge on being gritty in texture, yet there's adequate acidity to keep this fresh. Best from 2016 through 2024. 28,500 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 31, 2014: DOMAINES SCHLUMBERGER Pinot Gris Alsace Les Princes Abbés 2012 (88 points, $18)

Exhibits fine balance and mouthwatering acidity, with fresh flavors of juicy pear and apricot fruit, followed by hints of candied ginger and kumquat, smoke and spice. Drink now through 2020. 2,500 cases imported. —Alison Napjus

Mar. 29, 2014: TINAZZI Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso Ca' de Rocchi Monterè 2011 (90 points, $25)

This supple red is structured by firm, fine-grained tannins, with a tarry undertow supporting black currant, gumdrop, briar and star anise notes. Accessible now, but with the stuffing for short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2024. 7,000 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Mar. 28, 2014: CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE-DR. LOOSEN Riesling Columbia Valley Eroica Gold 2012 (90 points, $28)

This white is frankly sweet, with flavors of apricot and pear playing against hints of paprika and white pepper, lingering softly on the deft finish. Drink now through 2019. 2,500 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Mar. 27, 2014: ZACA MESA Viognier Santa Ynez Valley 2012 (88 points, $16)

Crisp and refreshing, this offers a mix of lemon, grapefruit and apple flavors, with floral and mineral accents on the finish. Drink now. 3,500 cases made. —MaryAnn Worobiec
