Rich on the nose, offering hints of cognac, dried fruit, honey and truffle, but dry and focused on the palate, with the fine, lacy texture carrying the rich flavor profile through to the lasting finish of salted almond. Drink now through 2021. 500 cases imported. —Alison Napjus
This cuts a broad swath, with lots of dark roasted fig, blackberry paste and warmed plum fruit stretching out over a long graphite spine that drives through the finish, leaving echoes of tar and smoldering tobacco. A style characterized by mountain fruit. Best from 2015 through 2018. 1,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
This big red shows depth and concentration, with more muscle than finesse for now, offering bold flavors of cranberry, red plum, licorice, rose petal and smoke. The tannins are chewy, the acidity quite racy and the fruit fresh. Just needs time to come together. Best from 2015 through 2025. 240 cases made. —Thomas Matthews
Butterscotch, lanolin, grapefruit and apple tart notes highlight this complex, vibrant white. Fluid, building to a long, mineral-tinged finish. Light tannins coat the gums. Best from 2016 through 2024. 100 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
Hints of toasted almond and orange liqueur impart rich character to the golden plum, black currant, biscuit and ginger flavors of this refined Champagne, seamlessly integrating the chinalike acidity, silky mousse and layered flavor profile. Drink now through 2027. 5,800 cases made. —Alison Napjus
