MONTELOMAS Malbec Mendoza 2003
87 points, $12
Chewy, briary Malbec, with blackberry and blueberry fruit followed by slightly rustic tannins. Should soften a touch with brief cellaring, but not as vivid as the best. Drink now through 2006. 1,800 cases made. —James Molesworth

GUARDIAN PEAK SMG Western Cape 2003
87 points, $14
Plush and forward, with lots of smoky, chocolaty toast backed by plum, briar and bacon notes. The finish shows a nice spine of acidity, but this is for fans of the in-your-face style. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache. Drink now through 2006. 4,000 cases mad —James Molesworth
