Apr. 23, 2014: LUCIEN LE MOINE Pommard Les Epenots 2011 (92 points, $140)

Smoky and spicy, with buried cherry and berry flavors. The tannins are assertive now, but all the pieces are in place, leading to a long finish. Needs time. Best from 2016 through 2024. 20 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 22, 2014: SCHERRER Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Big Brother 2009 (93 points, $55)

An expansive version, offering cherry, Asian plum, wilted rose and black licorice notes. This gains depth, finesse and traction on the finish, revealing gravel-laced tannins that cling to the palate. Drink now through 2023. 146 cases made. —James Laube

Apr. 21, 2014: YALUMBA Shiraz-Viognier Eden Valley Hand Picked 2010 (93 points, $31)

Apr. 19, 2014: PIERRE-HENRI MOREL Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2010 (90 points, $50)

A pretty, perfumy style, with anise and sandalwood notes leading to gentle plum and cherry fruit flavors. The tobacco edge slowly takes over on the elegant finish. Drink now through 2019. 500 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Apr. 18, 2014: D'ANGELO Aglianico del Vulture Caselle 2007 (92 points, $45)
