Oct. 28, 2014: DOMAINE LA BARROCHE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Pure 2012 (95 points, $78)

Concentrated but remarkably refined, this features a large core of raspberry, red currant and black cherry fruit that is pure, silky and beautifully defined. Hints of shiso leaf, iron and black tea line the finish, which has serious length thanks to finely beaded acidity. A deft marriage of power and grace. Best from 2015 through 2030. 1,900 cases made. —James Molesworth

Oct. 27, 2014: MATTEO CORREGGIA Barbera d'Alba Superiore Marun 2011 (92 points, $38)

Intense and concentrated, this red exudes flavors of blackberry and plum jam, violet and spice. This is stitched together with fine tannins, offering a finish that lingers with vanilla and sweet spice details. Shows fine harmony and length. Drink now through 2020. 800 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Oct. 25, 2014: ZIND-HUMBRECHT Gewürztraminer Alsace Calcaire 2012 (93 points, $55)

A seamless white, light-weight and silky in texture, with mouthwatering acidity enlivening the subtly honeyed flavors of peach skin, orange sorbet and ground ginger, all underscored by rich, minerally notes of stone and smoke that echo on the finish. Drink now through 2029. 125 cases imported. —Alison Napjus

Oct. 24, 2014: ORIN SWIFT Machete California 2012 (93 points, $48)

Concentrated yet light-weight, fragrant and juicy, with aromas of toasted cumin, gingerbread and Earl Grey tea surrounding the core of wild blueberry and huckleberry flavors. The firm tannins stay in the background, allowing this to finish on the juicy side. Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made. —MaryAnn Worobiec

Oct. 23, 2014: DOMAINE DE LA JANASSE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2012 (96 points, $121)

Tightly coiled for now, this features an intense, vivid core of anise, blackberry coulis, plum paste and macerated fig fruit, with black tea, smoldering tobacco and warm ganache notes. Long and dense, but very silky, with gorgeous violet and pastis details lingering in the background. Should unwind with time. Best from 2017 through 2035. 390 cases imported. —James Molesworth
