LEWIS Alec's Blend Napa Valley 2013
94 points, $62
A plush and generous blend that also shows excellent structure and focus. Brooding dark boysenberry and smoky mocha aromas combine with layered flavors of blackberry, graphite, nutmeg and brown spice. The tannins are burly, but ripe and fleshy. Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2027. 1,300 cases made. —Tim Fish

93 points, $100
A ripe, balanced and powerful red, with elegant flavors of roasted plum, dark cherry and Asian spice. Plush and juicy midpalate, featuring a finish filled with creamy dark chocolate notes. Very refined. Drink now through 2019. 3,500 cases made. —Kim Marcus

PETER MICHAEL Les Pavots Knights Valley 2005
92 points, $175
Aging beautifully, this is smooth, rich and layered, with tannins that offer substance and traction around the core of earth- and mineral-laced dark berry, cedar, tobacco and sage. Ends a bit grippy from tannins, but won't disappoint. Best soon. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.—2005 California Cabernet blind retrospective (September 2015). Drink now through 2020. 3,600 cases made. —James Laube

ACHÁVAL-FERRER Malbec Mendoza Finca Mirador 2013
91 points, $130
Well-sculpted, with iodine and hot stone notes to the flavors of concentrated dried berry and cherry. The peppery finish has some beefy details. Drink now through 2019. 1,340 cases made. —Kim Marcus

JEAN CHARTRON Chevalier-Montrachet Clos des Chevaliers 2013
94 points, $381
This white shows harmony, plenty of substance and refined flavors of peach, apple and spice, driven by the racy backbone. Continues like a laser through the long, juicy, mineral- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Best from 2018 through 2027. 93 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
