Jul. 31, 2014: AVENNIA Sestina Columbia Valley 2011 (93 points, $55)

Fine, powdery tannins surround a glowing core of blackberry, currant, licorice and dried sage flavors that pulse enticingly through a long and vivid finish. Elegant and almost approachable now, but give this time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2022. 250 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 30, 2014: PATRICK PIUZE Chablis Bougros 2012 (94 points, $70)

Richly textured and full of honey and spice notes, with accents of melon, apple and lemon fruit. A base of tangy acidity gives this a long, mouthwatering impression. Best from 2016 through 2028. 420 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Jul. 29, 2014: JULIEN PILON Condrieu Lône 2012 (92 points, $59)

Fennel, green almond, green fig and pear notes weave together, framed by a pronounced stony edge that keeps the bright, floral-infused finish tightly focused. A young domaine to watch. Drink now through 2017. 35 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Jul. 28, 2014: BODEGAS ALTO MONCAYO Garnacha Campo de Borja Veraton 2011 (92 points, $31)

This rich red delivers expressive flavors of blackberry, boysenberry and espresso, with a thick texture enlivened by balsamic acidity and supported by well-integrated tannins. Licorice and mineral notes add interest. Drink now through 2020. 2,000 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

Jul. 26, 2014: DOMAINE LES VERRIÈRES Coteaux du Languedoc Les Pierres Plantées 2008 (92 points, $33)

A suave style, with a meaty aroma and flavors of dried blackberry, plum compote and dark currant, laced with intense mineral and forest floor notes. Focused slate and savory details emerge midpalate and extend into the finish, revealing white pepper accents. Drink now through 2018. 1,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus
