Mar. 20, 2014: BODEGAS MONASTERIO Ribera del Duero Hacienda Monasterio 2010 (91 points, $50)

Smoky and gamy notes frame a core of plum and cassis in this dense, focused red. Chewy tannins and firm acidity build a firm structure, showing plenty of stuffing. Delivers a sanguine character that wants food to bloom. Best from 2015 through 2025. 11,490 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

Mar. 19, 2014: A.R. LENOBLE Brut Champagne Cuvée Intense NV (91 points, $47)

Lightly floral and fresh, with a firm backbone of acidity and a fine-grained texture structuring the tightly knit flavors of crunchy white peach, pear, pickled ginger and biscuit. Drink now through 2019. 15,000 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Mar. 18, 2014: MARZIANO ABBONA Barolo Terlo Ravera 2009 (93 points, $67)

This is a beautiful Barolo, bursting with pure cherry and raspberry fruit, accented by floral, tobacco and earth notes. Balanced and intense, showing no shortage of ripe tannins for support. Delivers fine length and a minerally element on the aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2032. 150 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 17, 2014: RIDGE Zinfandel Sonoma Valley Pagani Ranch 2011 (90 points, $35)

A bruiser of a Zin, dense and full of stuffing, showing ripe plum, grilled herb and toasty vanilla aromas that lead to dried cherry, smoky anise and tar flavors. Drink now through 2021. 1,775 cases made. —Tim Fish

Mar. 15, 2014: FERRER BOBET Priorat Vinyes Velles 2010 (92 points, $50)

Focused and harmonious, this red is modest yet deep, with blackberry, toast, mineral and forest floor flavors that mingle over well-integrated tannins and linger on the fresh finish. Alluring. Drink now through 2020. 300 cases imported. —Thomas Matthews
