Sep. 02, 2014: ALEX GAMBAL Puligny-Montrachet 2011 (90 points, $45)

Marked by oak for now, offering plenty of toast and spice elements to complement the apple and lemon flavors. Juicy and long, but needs a year to integrate all the elements. Best from 2015 through 2021. 200 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Sep. 01, 2014: SANTA SOFIA Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2008 (91 points, $65)

Date and dried cherry notes are layered with bright, juicy acidity and accents of coffee liqueur, gumdrop and dark chocolate in this balanced red. Fine-grained tannins and a sweet detail of smoky mineral show on the finish. Drink now through 2023. 7,716 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Aug. 30, 2014: DOMAINE DE LA TOUR DU BON Bandol 2011 (92 points, $36)

Dark currant, fig and blackberry fruit forms the core of this red, with well-hewn tannins providing support through the finish, where tobacco, charcoal and sinewy details fill in. A hint of baker's chocolate hangs in the background. This will need some time to fully stretch out. Best from 2016 through 2026. 1,400 cases made. —James Molesworth

Aug. 29, 2014: DELAFORCE Vintage Port 2011 (93 points, $70)

Powerfully fruity, with deep, rich flavors of dark plum, raspberry preserves and violet, accented by plenty of ripe, spicy notes. Dark chocolate and allspice accents linger on the long finish, revealing hints of cardamom and ginger. Best from 2020 through 2040. 500 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Aug. 28, 2014: CHÂTEAU LA NERTHE Châteauneuf-du-Pape White 2013 (91 points, $59)

Shows good zip, with a stony spine driving through the core of white peach, heather, bitter citrus and green almond notes. The long, racy finish leaves an echo of quinine. Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc. Drink now through 2018. 300 cases imported. —James Molesworth
