This isn\u2019t the piece we were supposed to be running on Wine Enthusiast today, but we also weren\u2019t prepared for warmer-than-usual autumn temperatures in our little corner of New York to suddenly plummet to below freezing overnight.\r\n\r\nSo on this Friday afternoon at #WEHQ, we find ourselves running around foraging like squirrels stockpiling nuts before a storm, hunting for extra bottles to bring home for the weekend. Editors\u2019 and tasters\u2019 chairs are left vacant due to the unexpected commotion, as wine racks, shelves, cardboard boxes and dark corners of our office are scoured for the biggest, heaviest reds to curl up with for the next 72 hours.\r\n\r\nHere are 10 of our recommended finds when it comes to big, bold reds across all price points. After all, if you\u2019re going to be stuck indoors hiding from the cold all weekend, it\u2019s best to have a friend to keep you warm.\r\n\r\n\r\nRecommended Reds to Stay Warm\r\nContinuum 2015 Sage Mountain Vineyard Proprietary Red (Napa Valley); $225, 96 points. This deeply flavored and silky-textured wine is surprising in the way that rather mild aromas of cigar box and pencil shavings lead to very rich and concentrated fruit flavors and a mouthfilling firmly tannic but certainly not heavy texture. It layers blueberry, black cherry, mocha and mint notes that seem to build and expand with each sip and linger on the finish. Best after 2024. Cellar Selection. \u2013Jim Gordon\r\n\r\nDomaine du Pegau 2015 Cuv\u00e9e R\u00e9serv\u00e9e (Ch\u00e2teauneuf-du-Pape); $110, 96 points. Savory notes of bramble, smoke and leather juxtapose forward plum, cherry and strawberry in this full-bodied wine. It\u2019s a penetrating, mouthfilling sip that lingers on the palate, finishing on soft, furry tannins. Approachable already, this concentrated wine should improve through 2025 and hold further. Editors\u2019 Choice. \u2013Anna Lee C. Iijima\r\n\r\nPassing Time 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Horse Heaven Hills); $80, 94 points. This wine contains mostly Cabernet Sauvignon from Discovery and Champoux vineyards, with pinches of Klipsun Merlot (8%) and Champoux Cabernet Franc (4%). Its black currant, cassis, blackberry, graphite, scorched earth and herb notes intoxicate. The palate is ripe, textured, layered and generous but still tightly wound, with polished tannins and an extremely long finish. It is a Cabernet Sauvignon prototype\u2014a complete standout that is delicious now but will have a long life in the cellar. Best from 2023\u20132035. Cellar Selection. \u2013Sean P. Sullivan\r\n\r\nTenuta San Guido 2016 Guidalberto (Toscana); $60, 93 points. This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot opens with aromas of black currant, star anise and a whiff of incense. It\u2019s savory and elegant, doling out flavors of dried black cherry, raspberry jam, white pepper and licorice. Fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide balanced support. Enjoy through 2027. \u2013Kerin O\u2019Keefe\r\n\r\nMontes 2015 Purple Angel Carmen\u00e8re (Colchagua Valley); $90, 92 points. Sappy, rooty aromas of baked black fruit, spice cake and chocolate announce a supremely ripe Carmen\u00e8re (with 8% Petit Verdot) that\u2019s as lush, chewy and dense on the palate as possible without being overdone. Massive blackberry, cassis, chocolate and baking spice flavors finish toasty and rich. While this turns over no new stones, it\u2019s decidedly appealing. Drink through 2021. \u2013Michael Schachner\r\n\r\nNieto Senetiner 2013 Don Nicanor Single Vineyard Villa Blanca Malbec (Luj\u00e1n de Cuyo); $45, 92 points. A smooth aroma of fully ripe blackberry comes with notes of cola and smoke. This is giant, but mostly in balance. Baked, spicy flavors of blackberry come with a lot of oak, while coffee and lightly herbal berry tones carry the finish. Drink through 2020. \u2013M.S.\r\n\r\nQuinta das Carvalhas 2015 Douro; $12, 92 points. This wine comes from the magnificent vineyard opposite the town of Pinh\u00e3o at the heart of the Douro. With its big, bold fruits, ripe tannins and wood-aging flavors, it provides a rich evocation of the minerality and structured texture from the region. Drink from 2019. Best Buy. \u2013Roger Voss\r\n\r\nChronic Cellars 2016 Sofa King Bueno (Paso Robles); $20, 90 points. This widely available, cleverly named blend of 44% Syrah, 31% Grenache, 13% Petite Sirah, 10% Mourv\u00e8dre and 2% Tannat packs in a ton of flavor for the price, offering fresh, inviting aromas of baked black cherry, boysenberry pie and vanilla. The palate is clean and juicy, with berry, thyme, cracked pepper and lavender flavors. Editors\u2019 Choice. \u2013Matt Kettmann\r\n\r\nFelline 2016 Primitivo di Manduria; $35, 90 points. A wealth of aromas start this off: black cherry, violets, blood-orange peel and resinous herbs. Ample in weight yet expertly balanced by a core of juicy acidity and grippy medium-grained tannins, the palate is carried by a fleshy mix of dark berries, red plums and earth. A tart cherry-skin flavor offers grip and intensity on the lingering finish. \u2013Alexander Peartree\r\n\r\nInnocent Bystander 2016 Syrah (Yarra Valley); $20, 90 points. A more savory, earthy and full-bodied style than the 2015, this cool climate Syrah offers ripe, brambly berries alongside bay leaf, black-pepper, damp earth and raw meat components. Those juicy berry and earthy characteristics show on the palate as well, but they\u2019re wrapped in savory, dusty tannins. Slightly bitter oak peeks through on the finish. \u2013Christina Pickard\r\n\r\nAnd finally, if you really don\u2019t want to have to brave the outside weather all the weekend, it\u2019s never a bad idea to opt for the box.\r\n\r\nVin Vault NV Cabernet Sauvignon (California); $20/3 L, 88 points. This may be the most serious California boxed wine on the market, showing great flavor concentration and an appetizing texture that's laced with fine-grained tannins. It has a deep red-black color, blackberry and dark chocolate aromas and a lip-smacking finish. Best Buy. \u2014J.G.
