Jan. 05, 2015: CIRRUS Syrah Stellenbosch 2011 (92 points, $43)

This cuts a broad swath, with lots of dark roasted fig, blackberry paste and warmed plum fruit stretching out over a long graphite spine that drives through the finish, leaving echoes of tar and smoldering tobacco. A style characterized by mountain fruit. Best from 2015 through 2018. 1,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

Jan. 03, 2015: LOSADA VINOS DE FINCA Bierzo Altos de Losada La Bienquerida 2011 (94 points, $62)

This big red shows depth and concentration, with more muscle than finesse for now, offering bold flavors of cranberry, red plum, licorice, rose petal and smoke. The tannins are chewy, the acidity quite racy and the fruit fresh. Just needs time to come together. Best from 2015 through 2025. 240 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

Jan. 02, 2015: MICHEL NIELLON Chassagne-Montrachet Clos de la Maltroie 2011 (92 points, $95)

Butterscotch, lanolin, grapefruit and apple tart notes highlight this complex, vibrant white. Fluid, building to a long, mineral-tinged finish. Light tannins coat the gums. Best from 2016 through 2024. 100 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 01, 2015: GOSSET Brut Champagne Grand Millésime 2004 (94 points, $100)

Hints of toasted almond and orange liqueur impart rich character to the golden plum, black currant, biscuit and ginger flavors of this refined Champagne, seamlessly integrating the chinalike acidity, silky mousse and layered flavor profile. Drink now through 2027. 5,800 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Dec. 31, 2014: PIO CESARE Barolo 2010 (92 points, $64)

This red exudes sweet cherry flavors in addition to vanilla and toast elements from the light oak treatment. Elegant and persistent, with a bright beam of acidity, refined tannins and an aftertaste of iron, mineral and spice. Best from 2017 through 2028. 2,300 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
