This has a bracing, stony profile, with lemon pulp and chamomile notes backed by a very racy, pebble-textured core of jicama, blanched almond, tarragon and thyme. Features a long, pure, piercing finish. If you like the bony profile, try now; or let this soften in the cellar. Drink now through 2017. 1,518 cases made. —James Molesworth
Tasty, with dried apricot, fresh mango and glazed peach flavors that pump along, carried by hints of ginger and dried orange peel. Drink now through 2016. 100 cases made. —James Molesworth
Bold and richly structured, this wine shows plenty of personality. Huckleberry, smoky mocha and herb aromas lead to deep, ripe flavors of savory plum, black licorice and mineral. The tannins build power on the finish. Zinfandel, Mourvèdre, Tempranillo and Petite Sirah. Drink now through 2023. 454 cases made. —Tim Fish
This is gorgeous, featuring rosemary-infused cassis, tobacco leaf and savory notes out front, followed by lush plum and blackberry fruit accents. The structure is pebbly in feel but well-integrated, with a smoldering lavender hint lining the finish. Should blossom with cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2026. 450 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Toast and spice flavors deepen the dried pear, ginger and marzipan flavors in this rich sparkler. Features a firm texture, with a focused mousse and cidery acidity. Showing maturity, but remains focused and long. Drink now through 2017. 475 cases made. —Thomas Matthews
