Sep. 27, 2014: COS Nero d'Avola Sicilia Contrada 2008 (94 points, $85)

A seamless red, with fine concentration and definition to the flavors of wild cherry, pomegranate, red licorice, herb, smoke and spicy mineral. Mouthwatering and elegant, offering a lovely finish that showcases the silky tannins. Drink now through 2028. 50 cases imported. —Alison Napjus

Sep. 26, 2014: DOMAINE VALLET St.-Joseph Méribets 2011 (93 points, $35)

This has a fairly dramatic persona, with bold, pastis-steeped plum, blackberry and black currant fruit melded with warm ganache, tar and melted licorice snap notes. Lots of smoldering bay leaf and dark olive accents line the finish, which has cut and grip. A small, up-and-coming producer. Drink now through 2020. 1,200 cases made. —James Molesworth

Sep. 25, 2014: DR. H. THANISCH (VDP) Riesling Spätlese Mosel Berncasteler Doctor 2012 (93 points, $76)

This rich version is filled with concentrated ripe peach, dried pear, glazed apricot and lemon zest flavors that are layered with plenty of minerally notes. Exhibits excellent balance and freshness, with a long finish filled with honey, cream and anise elements. Drink now through 2040. 200 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Sep. 24, 2014: BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS O. FOURNIER Malbec Uco Valley Alfa Crux 2010 (94 points, $54)

Plush and rich, with concentrated flavors of dark plum, porcino, baker's chocolate and blackberry. This has a core of dried beef and Asian spice notes that linger on the powerfully creamy finish. Drink now through 2018. 1,250 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Sep. 23, 2014: DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard 2012 (95 points, $80)

Offers a grippy feel, with taut licorice and tar notes stretching from start to finish. Ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors fill in the core, while hints of anise and juniper hang in the background. The finish reveals a bolt of graphite. Should age very nicely. Best from 2015 through 2030. 125 cases imported. —James Molesworth
