This is filled with butterscotch, dried apricot, honey and fig flavors that are flanked by luxuriant notes of cream and spice. There’s a firm core of acidity for support. The sweet finish is fresh and balanced, with some smoke and caramel accents. Drink now through 2028. 3,333 cases made. —Kim Marcus

A hint of orange peel to the lively dried raspberry, date and green fig flavors, which hang together with the support of vibrant acidity and medium-grained tannins. Complex and savory, with an alluring finish of sandalwood. Xinomavro. Drink now. 27,778 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Taut, with a minerally edge to the ripe apple, pear tart and wild cherry flavors, featuring lingering notes of grapefruit and flint. Finishes with a crisp accent of dried tarragon. Drink now through 2017. 5,556 cases made. —Kim Marcus
