May. 10, 2014: MERRY EDWARDS Sauvignon Blanc Russian River Valley 2012 (91 points, $32)

This shows good purity and focus to the flavors of honeydew melon, passion fruit, lime and pear, with floral and mineral details. The texture is succulent and smooth, finishing with a bright acidity. Drink now. 9,850 cases made. —MaryAnn Worobiec

May. 09, 2014: MARCASSIN Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Marcassin Vineyard 2009 (97 points, $125)

Amazingly seductive, from the initial aromas of smoky, toasty, creamy vanilla-scented oak to the richer mix of wild berry and raspberry fruit. Lifts midpalate and soars from there, finishing with a pleasing tannic grip and a long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,800 cases made. —James Laube

May. 08, 2014: MASI Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Mazzano 2007 (94 points, $175)

This Amarone offers more savory notes than sweet fruit, with tightly knit flavors of black olive, dried herb and seared mushroom, accented by hints of ground anise and pepper. Delivers depth and length, showing a hint of date on the lasting, minerally finish. Drink now through 2029. 1,158 cases made. —Alison Napjus

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
