Bonterra 1998 Syrah (Mendocino)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $19

This complex and elegant wine is certified organic. The bouquet has dimension, with cherry, leather, chalk, meat and cigar-box notes. Lightweight on the palate, it is nicely textured and delivers lots of fruit flavor. Firm acids support the fruit and a cocoa-spice finish wraps it up neatly.

Bonterra 1999 Viognier (Mendocino County)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $19

Showcases Viognier’s exotic, flowery side, with strong aromas of honeysuckle and jasmine accented with citrus fruits and peaches, coconut, and smoke and vanilla. There’s lots of extract, and it veers to stone fruits, especially peaches. It’s very light and elegant, and slightly sweet. This wine would be perfect with grilled trout. Editors’ Choice.

Boomtown 2013 Chardonnay (Washington)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $19

This well-built wine shows just the barest hint of barrel from fermentation and aging in neutral oak which seems to have rounded out the fruit and put some polish on the mouthfeel. Flavors are a tasty mix of lemon curd, honeysuckle, apple and peach, lightly spiced.

Borges 2009 Touriga Nacional (Dão)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $18

Although known in the Douro as an increasingly essential component of Port and table wines, the Touriga Nacional is equally at home in the Dão. As here, it produces linear wines, very mineral, full of acidity with a perfumed elegance. This is a wine for aging over 4–5 years.

Borgo di Colloredo 2007 Greco (Terra degli Osci)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $20

Here is an intensely fragrant Greco from Molise with notes of banana, peach, passion and exotic fruits backed by salt water taffy. The aromas keep coming and give this wine an extremely cheerful and upbeat personality. It is polished and smooth but it also offers density and texture.

Borgo Maragliano 2011 Brachetto (Piedmont)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $19

Truly enjoyable, this has loads of fizzy bubbles and sweet tones of strawberry and raspberry tart. This sweet, sparkling red wine is made with low atmospheric pressure, giving it a soft, creamy feel.

Borgogno F.lli Serio e Battista 2008 Cannubi Riserva Nebbiolo (Barolo)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $48

Aromas recall black berries, violets, leather, toasted notes, baking spices and subtle oak. The juicy palate delivers Morello cherry accented with notes of fig, cracked black pepper, balsamic herbs and licorice. The delicious fruit is supported by a seriously tannic backbone and bright acidity. Drink after 2018.

Borgogno F.lli Serio e Battista 2010 Cannubi Nebbiolo (Barolo)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $43

Hailing from the heart of the historic Cannubi vineyard, this polished wine opens with notes of black fruit, violet, leather and baking spices. The palate offers black raspberry, crushed cherry, clove and vanilla alongside brisk acidity and firm tannins. It’s already accessible but will improve over the next four to five years and then evolve gracefully for decades…
