Here’s a look at February's top-scoring Cellar Selection, Editors’ Choice and Best Buy. For full tasting notes on these and hundreds of other wines, visit the Buying Guide.


Château Latour 2009 Pauillac. A big, powerful wine that sums up the richness of the vintage. It is densely fruity, spicy with an enormous black plum and berry fruit character to go with the acidity. It’s concentrated while still showing such wonderfully pure fruit. The aging potential is immense. Multiple U.S. importers. —R.V.
abv: NA   Price: $2,300


Quilceda Creek 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Columbia Valley). The flagship wine from Quilceda Creek offers exotic scents of plum, cassis, loam, coffee and pine sap, a rich and evocative blend. The wine delivers all that is promised and more; it is deep and dense with flavor, polished and focused and persistent. Vanilla,
espresso, fine tannins, luscious acids
and cascading fruits. —P.G.
abv: 15.2%   Price: $125


Uvaggio 2010 Vermentino (Lodi). An incredibly priced, low-alcohol sipper that’s also complex enough to pair with a range of lighter foods. Its aromas of apricot and sweet peach are most inviting, and the wine also has a saltiness layered around its acidity that hits in the midpalate and then finishes dry. A complex, medium-bodied, layered white that tastes of the sea. —V.B.
abv: 12%   Price: $14
