Feb. 23, 2015: BODEGA ELIAS MORA Toro Descarte 2012 (94 points, $65)

Muscular yet expressive, this powerful red delivers flavors of ripe blackberry and currant that are framed by toast, espresso and loamy notes. Chewy tannins and fresh acidity find a balance as this wine glides to the floral and tarry finish. Drink now through 2025. 416 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

Feb. 21, 2015: VEYDER-MALBERG Grüner Veltliner Qualitätswein Trocken Wachau Wösendorfer Hochrain 2012 (92 points, $62)

A savory and minerally style, with green apple, grapefruit, quince and gooseberry flavors. Ripe midpalate, with concentrated dried mango and guava notes. The complex and slightly resinous finish is creamy and rich. Drink now through 2021. 291 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Feb. 20, 2015: CHÂTEAU DE FARGUES Sauternes 2011 (98 points, $140)

Shows fantastic range, featuring creamed Jonagold apple, papaya, toasted coconut, brioche and pineapple notes, laced with macadamia nut and heather honey details. The long, sweetened butter-filled finish shows citrus oil and bitter almond accents. Displays amazing depth and purity, with the elements glistening beautifully as the finish goes on. Best from 2018 through 2045. 1,250 cases made. —James Molesworth

Feb. 19, 2015: CHÂTEAU PAVIE MACQUIN St.-Emilion 2009 (96 points, $95)

This is a "wow" wine, with a stunning display of plum, blackberry and raspberry confiture aromas and flavors, allied to a dense but very velvety structure. Licorice, violet and plum cake notes fill in the background. Everything carries through the long, lush finish until the fine chalky minerality finally appears, adding remarkable finesse to this otherwise explosive display. Hard not to drink now, but this will cruise in the cellar.—Non-blind Pavie Macquin vertical (December 2014). Drink now through 2030. 3,750 cases made. —James Molesworth

Feb. 18, 2015: VALDICAVA Brunello di Montalcino Madonna del Piano Riserva 2005 (93 points, $250)

Rich in cherry and blackberry flavors, with tar, leather and tobacco accents, this is fresh and elegant, framed by refined tannins and vibrant acidity. Harmonious, long and approachable now, though there's no rush. Drink now through 2022. 400 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
