Sep. 23, 2014: DOMAINE DE BEAURENARD Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard 2012 (95 points, $80)

Offers a grippy feel, with taut licorice and tar notes stretching from start to finish. Ripe plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit flavors fill in the core, while hints of anise and juniper hang in the background. The finish reveals a bolt of graphite. Should age very nicely. Best from 2015 through 2030. 125 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Sep. 22, 2014: ALEX GAMBAL Vosne-Romanée Vieilles Vignes 2011 (92 points, $70)

A succulent and expressive style, boasting raspberry, wild cherry, currant and spice flavors. Picks up a stony element and a chalky feel as the finish lingers. Best from 2016 through 2027. 150 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Sep. 20, 2014: COS Grecanico Terre Siciliane Pithos Bianco 2012 (91 points, $44)

A distinctive white, with a lovely interplay between the razor-sharp acidity, salinity and ripe, aromatic flavors of black raspberry puree, macerated peach, almond skin, fresh herb and floral. A concentrated white that stays light on its feet. Will shine with food. Drink now through 2024. 200 cases imported. —Alison Napjus

Sep. 19, 2014: PODERE SAPAIO Bolgheri Volpolo 2011 (93 points, $35)

Restrained, exhibiting black currant, cherry, cedar and sage aromas that pick up licorice, spice and mineral flavors. This is concentrated and focused, with a beam of acidity and an iron accent on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2024. 7,500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Sep. 18, 2014: GABRIEL MEFFRE Condrieu Laurus 2012 (94 points, $65)
