Dec. 16, 2014: KEN WRIGHT Pinot Noir Yamhill-Carlton District Shea Vineyard 2012 (92 points, $63)

Supple, generous and expressive on an open frame that lets the flavors float, with a tinge of crisp tannins impinging slightly on the black cherry and Earl Grey tea flavors, which linger on the elegant finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,273 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 15, 2014: ROGER PERRIN Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2011 (91 points, $36)

Dense and silky, with alluring plum, red currant and black cherry notes laced with pastis, singed apple wood and black tea accents, followed by a fresh, focused and mineral-driven finish. This should fill out nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2024. 250 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Dec. 13, 2014: DOMAINE DES BAUMARD Savennières Clos du Papillon 2011 (91 points, $45)

This has a succulent feel, with enticing green melon, pear, fig and quince fruit flavors laced with lime zest and honeysuckle notes. The finish is long and juicy. Should unwind nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Dec. 12, 2014: SYNCLINE Mourvèdre Red Mountain 2011 (91 points, $45)

Broad and spicy, but not heavy, dripping with plum and currant fruit and sneaking in hints of licorice and roasted meat as the finish lingers enticingly against modest tannins. Drink now through 2019. 160 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 11, 2014: ODDERO Barolo Villero 2010 (95 points, $75)

Silky and aromatic, boasting rose, cherry, strawberry and spice notes, this is well-structured and firm, yet beautifully balanced between fruit and woodsy flavors, revealing sweetness, tannins and a minerally aftertaste. Classic elegance from Castiglione Falletto. Best from 2017 through 2032. 400 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
