Casa Ferreirinha 2004 Barca Velha Red (Douro)

  • Cellar Selection
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $426
This is the latest release of Portugal’s most iconic wine. It’s made only in selected years (the last vintage was 2000) from Ferreira’s Quinta da Leda in the Douro Superior. This new vintage is superb. It’s a richly tarry wine laden with dark plum fruits and tannins that are just beginning to mature. It’s a ripe and luscious, demanding attention, yet will still age…  — R.V.  (8/1/2014)

Taylor Fladgate 1964 Very Old Single Harvest Port (Port)

  • Best Buy
  • Online Exclusive
Properly old gold in color, this is a wine from a single year, aged in casks. It’s poised between amazing fruit and a wonderful velvet texture that is shot through with acidity. A feeling of lightness comes from the acidity that gives great freshness as well as complex flavors. It’s ready to drink.  — R.V.  (8/1/2014)

These “Original Vines” are in fact the oldest Pinot Gris vines in the country. They deliver exquisite details of earth and stone around a solid core of apple and Asian pear. It’s bone dry, with exceptional depth.  — P.G.  (8/1/2014)

Fritz Haag 2012 Brauneberger Juffer Auslese Goldkapsel Riesling (Mosel)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $42
Scents of lemon candy and tangerine accent intense flavors of honeysuckle, peach and mango on this deeply penetrating sweet Riesling. Brisk with acidity, it’s delicate and dancing on the palate, but a honeyed richness coats the tongue deliciously. Finishes long with a kiss of saffron and blossoms.  — A.I.  (8/1/2014)

Fritz Haag 2012 Brauneberger Juffer Sonnenuhr Auslese Goldkapsel Riesling (Mosel)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $52
While it’s hard to go wrong with any of Fritz Haag’s gorgeously sunny 2012 auslesen, the goldkapsels truly exemplify the pristine lusciousness of stone fruit and mango. Lemon acidity sings through the midpalate, highlighting nuanced shades of spice, mineral and earth that linger on the finish. Decadent yet impeccably balanced.  — A.I.  (8/1/2014)

Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt 2012 Scharzhofberger GL Spätlese Riesling (Mosel)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $45
Exuberant in perfume, it conveys heady notes of honey, tangerine and mimosa that linger gorgeously through the palate. It’s delicate in mouthfeel, yet almost shockingly penetrating with sweet peach and citrus flavors accented with punchy lemon acidity. Finishes long with an elegant swathe of green florals.  — A.I.  (8/1/2014)

Robert Weil 2012 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Spätlese Riesling (Rheingau)

A complex array of floral tones builds throughout this medium-sweet Riesling. Green notes of iris and lily add refreshment to a backdrop of heady jasmine and orange blossom. The palate is intensely fruity with juicy white peach and apricot flavors accented with a zesty lime acidity that revitalizes. Delicately framed, yet decadent and ebullient.  — A.I.  (8/1/2014)

Robert Weil 2012 Kiedrich Turmberg Spätlese Riesling (Rheingau)

  • Online Exclusive
  1. $92
Honey and saffron accent pristine peach and floral aromas on this wine from Robert Weil’s historic “tower hill” vineyard. It’s extravagantly ripe with yellow stone-fruit and tangerine flavors, yet dancing on the palate with zesty lime acidity and a shimmering mineral streak that lingers on the finish. Complex and penetrating from start to finish.  — A.I.  (8/1/2014)
