Nov. 04, 2014: JEAN-LOUIS CHAVE St.-Joseph 2011 (94 points, $75)

Shows weight and depth, but maintains a distinctive purity as the core of plum, blackberry and anise flavors takes center stage, backed by hints of violet, iron and graphite. The lingering sanguine echo on the finish has deceptive length. Should cellar very well. Comparable in quality to the 2010, this bottling continues to improve. Best from 2015 through 2022. 1,580 cases made. —James Molesworth

Nov. 01, 2014: SANTO WINES Assyrtiko Santorini Grande Reserve 2011 (93 points, $35)

Big, rich and full of unctuous pear tart, apple pastry and glazed apricot flavors that feature a creamy texture. Tightly wounds, with a lingering finish of lemon curd and spice. A well-crafted white. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Oct. 31, 2014: SWITCHBACK RIDGE Petite Sirah Napa Valley Peterson Family Vineyard 2011 (93 points, $58)

Offers a powerful core of blackberry and wild blueberry flavors, with plush, velvety tannins and black licorice, dark chocolate, Earl Grey tea, nutmeg, fresh rosemary and sage details. The finish goes on and on. Drink now through 2025. 448 cases made. —MaryAnn Worobiec

Oct. 30, 2014: VRANKEN Brut Champagne Diamant NV (92 points, $53)

A well-cut Champagne, satiny in texture, offering lovely integration of the fine acidity and notes of raisin bread, ripe, grainy pear, orchard blossom and pickled ginger. Drink now through 2020. 670 cases imported. —Alison Napjus

Oct. 29, 2014: GEORGES VERNAY Côte-Rôtie Maison Rouge 2011 (92 points, $189)

A fresh, racy style, offering a mix of iron, violet, white pepper, sanguine, cherry and steeped red currant notes that stretch out together through the pure, incense-tinged finish. Drink now through 2022. 625 cases made. —James Molesworth
