Aug. 02, 2014: MOVIA Brda Lunar 2008 (92 points, $45)

Deeply golden in color, this has the floral- and yeast-laced nose of a fine Lambic beer, with more delicacy on the palate. Subtle notes of macerated apricot, ground clove, dried orange peel and toasted almond are well-integrated with the rapierlike acidity and light tannins. Offers a long, saline-tinged finish. Ribolla. Drink now through 2023. 100 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Aug. 01, 2014: POLIZIANO Toscana Le Stanze 2009 (93 points, $60)

Black currant, black cherry, licorice and herb aromas and flavors highlight this dense, vibrant red. This is firm, showing harmony and promise, with dusty tannins on the finish. Fine length. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now through 2020. 1,650 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Jul. 31, 2014: AVENNIA Sestina Columbia Valley 2011 (93 points, $55)

Fine, powdery tannins surround a glowing core of blackberry, currant, licorice and dried sage flavors that pulse enticingly through a long and vivid finish. Elegant and almost approachable now, but give this time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2016 through 2022. 250 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jul. 30, 2014: PATRICK PIUZE Chablis Bougros 2012 (94 points, $70)

Richly textured and full of honey and spice notes, with accents of melon, apple and lemon fruit. A base of tangy acidity gives this a long, mouthwatering impression. Best from 2016 through 2028. 420 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Jul. 29, 2014: JULIEN PILON Condrieu Lône 2012 (92 points, $59)

Fennel, green almond, green fig and pear notes weave together, framed by a pronounced stony edge that keeps the bright, floral-infused finish tightly focused. A young domaine to watch. Drink now through 2017. 35 cases imported. —James Molesworth
