Named for a pine tree that grows on the estate where it is made, this Merlot-based wine from Pomerol remains officially unclassified, yet collectors hold this Bordeaux in highest regard, thanks to its singular character and mercurial play of flavors. The 2008 vintage is as tantalizing to the palate as a slice of fresh-baked cherry pie. ($1,500)
