Oct. 16, 2014: DOMAINE GIRAUD Châteauneuf-du-Pape Prémices 2012 (93 points, $42)

Racy and energetic, with a singed mesquite and apple wood spine that keeps the cherry paste, damson plum and red currant fruit moving along. Notes of bay leaf, tobacco and spice line the finish, where an iron accent lurks. Best from 2015 through 2030. 500 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Oct. 15, 2014: CASTELLO DI AMA Chianti Classico San Lorenzo Gran Selezione 2011 (92 points, $52)

Broad and intense, exhibiting floral, cherry, rhubarb, leather and almond notes. Well-knit and vibrant, with a compact finish. Should stretch out nicely. Best from 2016 through 2026. 7,500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

This is expressive and distinct, with succulent peach cobbler, jasmine and apricot notes wrapped in a supple, medium-bodied texture.

Oct. 13, 2014: COUGAR CREST Cabernet Franc Walla Walla Valley Cougar Hills Vineyard 2009 (93 points, $40)

Sleek in structure and expansive in flavor, singing with gorgeous red berry, cherry, floral and white pepper notes that dance gracefully through the long and expressive finish. Drink now through 2017. 643 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Oct. 11, 2014: BODEGAS ATECA Calatayud Atteca Armas Old Vines 2011 (91 points, $45)
