May. 07, 2014: M. CHAPOUTIER Ermitage Les Greffieux 2011 (95 points, $176)

Offers a mouthfilling, brambly feel, with dark plum, steeped blackberry and mulled boysenberry fruit at the core, backed by anise, singed mesquite and black tea notes that give the finish a perfumy caste. Has depth and power but stays remarkably refined. Best from 2016 through 2030. 13 cases imported. —James Molesworth

May. 06, 2014: MATTHEWS Syrah Columbia Valley 2011 (93 points, $38)

Poised and expressive, this is layered with rose petal accented black cherry, berry and spicy meat flavors, all coming together harmoniously as the finish lingers. The tannins are well-integrated. Drink now through 2019. 386 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

May. 05, 2014: DE TRAFFORD Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch 2012 (92 points, $32)

Ripe, with layered pear, green melon, green fig and green almond notes, framed with heather and salted butter hints. The long, lush finish shows some toast accents, and needs a touch more cellaring to settle in fully. Best from 2015 through 2017. 100 cases imported. —James Molesworth

May. 03, 2014: VIÑA MONTES Folly Santa Cruz 2011 (94 points, $90)

A ripe, rich and elegant red, offering refined yet powerful flavors of blackberry, dark plum, dark cherry and boysenberry. Very creamy midpalate, showing some notes of black licorice and pepper. The long finish is intensely spicy, with some savory accents. Syrah. Drink now through 2019. 600 cases made. —Kim Marcus

May. 02, 2014: LA SIRENA Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010 (91 points, $150)

Very tight and tannic, with an underlying charm imparting a measure of finesse and refinement that bodes well for the future. Ends on a graceful note. Best from 2015 through 2025. 479 cases made. —James Laube
