Jan. 23, 2015: CHÊNE BLEU Viognier Vin de Pays de Vaucluse 2012 (92 points, $41)

Gorgeously pure, with long, flowing honeysuckle and heather notes that frame the core of Jonagold apple, apricot, green plum and pear flavors. Bright quinine and mineral notes take over on the finish, giving this serious length and definition. Drink now through 2016. 150 cases made. —James Molesworth

Jan. 22, 2015: AZELIA Barolo 2010 (92 points, $48)

The chewy texture gives definition to the cherry, plum, licorice and tar flavors. The tannins are surprisingly civilized, making this Barolo relatively open and fluid for the vintage. Tightens up on the finish. Best from 2017 through 2030. 2,200 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 21, 2015: ACHÁVAL-FERRER Malbec Mendoza Finca Bella Vista 2012 (92 points, $140)

Unctuous, intensely fruity and pure, with red currant, dried raspberry, boysenberry and spiced cherry flavors, supported by lip-smacking acidity. The lively finish echoes with brambly notes. Drink now through 2018. 1,896 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Jan. 20, 2015: LARRY CHERUBINO Chardonnay Margaret River 2012 (92 points, $36)

Satiny smooth and effusively flavorful, this is centered on pear and floral flavors, hinting at peach and cream as the finish lingers effortlessly. Elegant and polished. Drink now through 2019. 700 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jan. 19, 2015: JACOPO BIONDI-SANTI Toscana Sassoalloro 2010 (91 points, $32)

Dark and concentrated, this red displays blackberry, plum, smoke and spice flavors. Supple and balanced, with a long, saturated finish of dark fruit and spice. Drink now through 2020. 12,500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
