95 points, $36
Creamed pineapple, yellow apple and ginger notes form the core here, which has ample weight but moves gracefully, as orange zest and elderflower honey details stream underneath. A bitter citrus oil accent hangs on the finish for a long time. Has a lot of power for a Barsac. Best from 2020 through 2040. 2,083 cases made. —James Molesworth

SHAFER Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District One Point Five 2013
90 points, $85
Tight and focused, with a mix of currant, dill, cedar, graphite and loamy earth flavors, shaded with spicy oak nuances and supported by firm, dusty tannins. Best from 2019 through 2030. 9,000 cases made. —James Laube

Ripe and focused, with layers of plum paste, raspberry coulis and macerated bitter cherry driving along, backed by anise and iron notes on the finish. Has a slightly taut edge, so cellar for maximum effect. Best from 2018 through 2026. 10,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

BODEGAS MONTECILLO Rioja Gran Reserva 2009
90 points, $35

DOMAINE LA HAUTE MARONE Gigondas Le Cru des Dentelles de Montmirail 2013
91 points, $32
This is showing some mature hints, with alder and smoldering tobacco details emerging from the core of gently steeped red and black currant fruit. A brambly structure and a tarry echo check in on the finish, giving this an old-school feel. Drink now through 2019. 2,200 cases made. —James Molesworth
