Mar. 07, 2014: EMERITUS Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Hallberg Ranch 2011 (93 points, $42)

Impressive, offering richness, vibrancy and subtle charm, marked by snappy blackberry, red berry, spice, sage and underbrush notes. Ends with a minerally edge that holds the flavors. Drink now through 2021. 11,100 cases made. —James Laube

Mar. 06, 2014: VINCENT GIRARDIN Volnay Les Santenots 2011 (93 points, $53)

A succulent, harmonious version, this exhibits raspberry, cherry, mineral and toasty oak spice notes. Vibrant and complex, with fine intensity on the long, fruit- and spice-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2024. 183 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 05, 2014: BARON-FUENTÉ Brut Champagne 2006 (91 points, $40)

Firm and focused, this structured version offers a well-meshed range of dried apricot, almond biscotti and cassis flavors, showing a clean chalkiness to the texture. Drink now through 2026. 4,000 cases made. —Alison Napjus

Mar. 04, 2014: DOMAINE DU VIEUX TÉLÉGRAPHE Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Crau 2011 (93 points, $75)

Tightly coiled for now, with pepper, garrigue and briar notes wrapped around a core of steeped cherry, damson plum and blackberry fruit. Cedar and sandalwood accents line the finish, revealing a hint of blood orange. This needs some cellaring to unwind fully. Best from 2016 through 2026. 16,700 cases made. —James Molesworth
