Sep. 24, 2014: BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS O. FOURNIER Malbec Uco Valley Alfa Crux 2010 (94 points, $54)

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.

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
