Feb. 07, 2014: TURLEY Zinfandel Paso Robles Pesenti Vineyard 2011 (93 points, $35)

Deeply structured and jammed with fruit, this offers aromas of briary wild berry and grilled fennel, with appealingly rustic and ripe dried cherry, mineral and smoky cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2021. 1,800 cases made. —Tim Fish

Feb. 06, 2014: JEAN-MICHEL STEPHAN Côte-Rôtie Côteaux de Bassenon 2009 (95 points, $115)

Very dark, with brooding aromas of espresso, charcoal and smoldering bay leaf, this is racy and pure, dominated by a strong iron spine, while well-defined black cherry, red currant and blackberry fruit waits in reserve. Offers a distinctive dark yet racy profile, revealing an echo of burnished leather on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2026. 50 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Feb. 05, 2014: MARKUS MOLITOR Riesling Auslese Mosel Ürziger Würzgarten 2011 (95 points, $99)

Sweet and luscious, with concentrated honeyed notes to the ripe apple, baked pear, quince and peach cobbler flavors, revealing nuances of spice. Plush and creamy on the juicy finish, this is pure and seductively rich. Drink now through 2040. 1,400 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Feb. 04, 2014: GIANNI GAGLIARDO Barolo 2009 (92 points, $52)

A lacy, refined style, boasting flavors of cherry, strawberry, wild herbs and tobacco. This is harmonious and well-knit, with an extended finish that echoes the berry fruit while picking up a mineral element. Best from 2015 through 2030. 1,400 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 03, 2014: MAISON NICOLAS PERRIN Crozes-Hermitage 2011 (90 points, $33)

The blackberry and black cherry fruit ripples along, with graphite stitching and mouthwatering violet and anise notes on the finish. A textbook example. Drink now through 2018. 4,172 cases made. —James Molesworth
