Feb. 18, 2014: SUAVIA Soave Classico Monte Carbonare 2011 (91 points, $33)

A finely balanced and juicy white, with a hint of honey accenting notes of ripe apricot, poached quince and pineapple, balanced by a lightly chalky texture and snappy acidity. Offers a creamy, lasting finish. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2019. 2,500 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Feb. 17, 2014: SAXUM Syrah Paso Robles Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard 2011 (93 points, $89)

Classic notes of pepper and wild berry give this sturdy red plenty of backbone and tension. The tannins are more muscular and gripping than in recent vintages, giving the flavors traction and length. Drink now through 2026. 460 cases made. —James Laube

Feb. 15, 2014: YALUMBA Viognier Eden Valley The Virgilius 2010 (91 points, $40)

Vibrant, focused and distinctive, showing harmony to the lemon, pear, lychee and spice flavors. This comes together smoothly on the polished finish. Drink now through 2018. 400 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

Feb. 14, 2014: MICHELE & PATRICE RION Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes 2010 (92 points, $125)

Svelte and vibrant, this red allies black currant, violet, smoke and spice flavors to a succulent texture. Firmly structured, with fine harmony and a lingering expression of fruit, spice and mineral on the resonant finish. Best from 2016 through 2028. 175 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 13, 2014: GIUSEPPE CORTESE Barbaresco Rabajà 2010 (94 points, $55)

Bright, with cherry, strawberry and floral aromas and flavors, this is backed by a firm yet integrated underlying structure. Beautifully poised for development, so hands off for now. Juicy and long, delivering a lingering aftertaste of cherry, spice and mineral. Best from 2015 through 2027. 1,420 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
