Dec. 27, 2014: SCHRAMSBERG J. Schram North Coast 2006 (93 points, $110)

Luscious and richly structured, with bold aromas of cinnamon apple and brioche, this delivers complex, ripe flavors of Meyer lemon, baked pear and almond. Drink now through 2016. 3,231 cases made. —Tim Fish

Dec. 26, 2014: DOMAINE HUËT Vouvray Sec Clos du Bourg 2013 (92 points, $35)

This is nicely rendered for the vintage, with a steely, minerally spine buried in the core of apple, ginger, pear and quince flavors. Shows good focus, with a taut feel on the finish that should loosen in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2020. 0400 cases imported. —James Molesworth

Dec. 25, 2014: B LEIGHTON Syrah Yakima Valley Olsen Brothers Vineyard 2012 (91 points, $45)

Earthy, gamy overtones add complexity to the ripe black cherry and oatmeal flavors. Wet earth notes are more prominent on the finish. This has depth and a distinctive personality. Best from 2016 through 2020. 105 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 24, 2014: SCHIAVENZA Barolo Cerretta 2010 (95 points, $60)

Seductive aromas of truffle, rose, raspberry and wild cherry draw you in. On the palate, this is elegant and focused, picking up accents of licorice, spice and tobacco. A hint of tar emerges as this graceful red lingers on the complex finish. Best from 2017 through 2030. 330 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 23, 2014: TWO HANDS Shiraz Barossa Valley Coach House Block Single Vineyard Seppeltsfield Road Greenock 2012 (95 points, $127)

Plush and powerful, with a salvo of black cherry, blackberry, currant and spice box pushing through layers of fine tannins and coming out the other side with exuberant aromatics. The finish loses no momentum carrying these flavors in a big but relatively agile package. Best from 2017 through 2025. 250 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
