Sep. 23, 2005: MOUNT LANGI GHIRAN Shiraz Victoria Billi Billi 2002 (90 points, $15)

Ripe, generous and distinctly peppery around a generous core of ripe plum, cherry and spice flavors, the black pepper character weaving enticingly through the finish. Yummy stuff. Drink now through 2015. 2,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

Sep. 22, 2005: PENFOLDS Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia Bin 389 2002 (89 points, $25)

Bright and juicy, a claret-style blend of Cabernet and Shiraz that lets its blackberry and currant flavors glow on a supple core, lingering nicely on the velvety finish. Drink now through 2010. 19,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

Sep. 21, 2005: PETER LEHMANN Clancy's Barossa 2003 (89 points, $15)

Firm, muscular style has a distinctive range of flavors, offering ripe cherry, blackberry, orange peel and a hint of mint as the finish lingers against fine tannins. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2007 through 2012. 50,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Sep. 20, 2005: CLINE Zinfandel Contra Costa County Live Oak 2003 (89 points, $25)

Oodles of eucalyptus, but excellent concentration to the dark chocolate, black cherry, dried berry and espresso bean oak. Tannins are a tad surly, but it ends on a supple, harmonious note. Drink now through 2009. 1,285 cases made. —James Laube
