Dec. 04, 2014: CLOS MOGADOR Priorat White Nelin 2011 (90 points, $55)

This expressive white has a distinctive character, from the deep gold color to the spicy aromas to the bold flavors of spiced pear, nutmeg, apple tart and blanched almond. The muscular texture has enough acidity to remain structured. Exotic. Drink now through 2016. 500 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Dec. 03, 2014: DUMOL Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2012 (91 points, $64)

A tight, seductive style, with subtle jazzy oak notes woven into the ripe plum and blueberry flavors. The tannins close in on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 4,865 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Dec. 02, 2014: PUNSET Barbaresco 2009 (92 points, $42)

This leads off with plenty of tar and licorice notes, followed by ample cherry and berry flavors. Full and sweet overall, with moderate tannins on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2025. 833 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 01, 2014: BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS VALDERIZ Ribera del Duero 2009 (93 points, $40)

This polished red shows plum, graphite, licorice and tobacco flavors that mingle over well-integrated tannins. Elegant, harmonious and long. Drink now through 2019. 4,000 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

Nov. 29, 2014: PHILIPPONNAT Brut Champagne Grand Blanc 2006 (92 points, $72)

Firm and lightly smoky, with a lively bead and finely meshed flavors of yellow plum, star fruit, biscuit and golden raisin. Balanced, with a chalky finish that's more subtle today, but this elegant version should evolve and expand in the glass or cellar. Disgorged April 2014. Drink now through 2024. 1,600 cases made. —Alison Napjus
