CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia Valley Indian Wells 2003

BENNETT LANE Maximus Napa Valley 2003
90 points, $28
Impressive for its concentration, depth and complexity, with tiers of red currant, wild berry, mocha, fresh earth and cedar notes. Well-focused, it gains depth and length on the finish, where the flavors fan out, ending with a firm, tannic aftertaste. Cab —James Laube

BENTON-LANE Pinot Noir Oregon 2004

Broad, round and generous with its spicy plum, red pepper and toasty spice flavors, lingering nicely on the cinnamon-scented finish. Drink now through 2010. 17,209 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

HOUGHTON Chardonnay Western Australia 2004
89 points, $15
Bright and nicely focused to show off its distinctive pear, quince and lime aromas and flavors, lingering on a refined finish with just the slightest hint of spicy oak lurking in the background. Drink now through 2008. 60,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
May. 11, 2006
MASCIARELLI Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Marina Cvetic 2001
90 points, $25
Lots of spicy, ripe fruit character on the nose, with a clean mineral note. Full-bodied, with a vibrant, minerally palate, silky tannins and an intense finish. Peppery. Nicely poised, but needs a bit of time. Best after 2006. 7,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
