Your Host is Michael Tobin of Worldwide Wines.

De Toren Fusion V 2011     $59.99

A polished style, with alluring mocha and black tea aromas that meld with the crushed plum, steeped blueberry and macerated currant fruit. Offers a long, fine-grained finish, remaining approachable, showing the depth and balance to gain some further nuance with time. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2018. Wine Spectator, 91 pts

Siesta Malbec 2010     $22.99
Bright ruby-red. Slightly port-like aromas and flavors of black cherry, fig, licorice and mocha oak lifted by a whiff of candied violet. Round, dense and glyceral, but with good verve to the plush, sweet middle palate. Finishes with sexy nutty and chocolatey oak tones and excellent length. Has the balance and firm tannic structure to reward at least few years of cellaring. International Wine Cellar, 90 pts

Mont Redon Cotes De Rhone 2012    $16.99
This wine is deep violet red in color and the nose is intensely fruity, with mineral notes. This vintage brought remarkable freshness, as well as balanced tannins. Dark berries and raspberries on the palate are offset by slight grilled notes and nuances of licorice. Winemaker’s Notes

Roederer Estate Brut NV $21.99
60% Chardonnay blended with 40% Pinot Noir, aged two years on yeast is affordable and luxurious. A gorgeous, very dry sparkling wine with aromatics of honey, raisin, apple and pear, it is rich and soft and offers both depth and length. It’s an ideal marriage of bright acidity and ripe fruit character." Wine Enthusiast, 92 pts
