FINCA ALLENDE Rioja 2006
90 points, $27
Expressive and harmonious, this modern red balances plum, cassis, coffee, mineral and herb flavors in a plush texture, with graceful tannins and a finish accented with spice and lilac. Drink now through 2012. 3,000 cases imported. —Thomas Matthews

DOMAINE DU GROS NORÉ Bandol 2003
91 points, $26
Rich and ripe, with dark plum and cassis flavors, and notes of graphite and iron. Full-bodied, with plenty of charcoal meat notes and a finish filled with dark chocolate. Just a baby. Best from 2008 through 2012. 1,475 cases imported. —Kim Marcus

CLOS DE NOUYS Vouvray Moelleux 2003
91 points, $20
Shows ripe tropical notes of guava and pineapple, along with ginger and apricot, but a firm almond hint keeps it all honest and drives the finish. Drink now through 2009. 2,080 cases made. —James Molesworth

TRIVENTO Malbec Mendoza Golden Reserve 2003
89 points, $20
Flashy mocha and coffee toast leads the way in this ambitious, modern-style wine, with thickly layered plum, prune, cocoa and fig flavors. Rich, loamy undertow drives the finish. More power than finesse, but will have a lot of fans. Drink now through 2008 —James Molesworth

HEIDSIECK MONOPOLE Brut Champagne Blue Top NV 1998
88 points, $30
A fruity style, reminiscent of candied berry, honey and citrus flavors that resonate through the finish. Open and easy, with good balance. Drink now. 200,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
