BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS VIÑA MAYOR Tempranillo Ribera del Duero Crianza 2015
89 points, $17
This red is crisp and focused. Leaf and cocoa notes frame black cherry, licorice and loamy earth flavors. The moderate tannins are well-integrated and lively acidity leaves a juicy finish. Drink now through 2025. 40,000 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

MAYACAMAS Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder 2013
93 points, $125
A textbook mountain fruit Cabernet, with menthol and sage notes leading the way for gently steeped plum, black currant and blackberry flavors. The spine is bramble and the backdrop is roasted apple and tobacco, all combining in a pleasantly grippy and rustic finish. Will cellar nicely. Best from 2022 through 2037. 2,410 cases made. —James Molesworth
