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

Dec. 10, 2014: MARCIANO Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012 (93 points, $250)

A seductive style, introduced by jazzy, creamy, mocha-laced oak, this is elegantly styled, with well-integrated plum, cherry and blackberry flavors, ending with mocha and black licorice notes that give this a graceful, harmonious finish. Drink now through 2026. 250 cases made. —James Laube

Dec. 09, 2014: ARMANDO PARUSSO Barolo 2010 (91 points, $52)

This is juicy, sporting cherry, raspberry, rose and leather flavors. Hints of underbrush and eucalyptus emerge on the finish, where the tannins exert a tight grip. Best from 2016 through 2027. 2,100 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 08, 2014: POEIRA Douro 2011 (93 points, $50)

A powerful and lithe red, with plenty of dusty notes to the lively red plum, dried berry and dark chocolate flavors. Sanguine accents show on the muscularly tannic finish. Needs some time to open up. Best from 2016 through 2022. 1,250 cases made. —Kim Marcus
