Big, bold and rich, with pear, melon and honeysuckle flavors. Notes of orange and honey give it a hint of sweetness, yet there's firm acidity--even tannin--to keep it structured and balanced. Garnacha Blanca. Drink now. 2,500 cases made. —Thomas Matthews
Firm, fresh and fruity, with red plum, raspberry and licorice and shadings of mineral and smoke. Medium- to full-bodied but not overpowering, with a peppery finish. A delicious expression of Touriga. Drink now through 2007. 900 cases made. —Kim Marcus
Alluring aromas of minerals, wild herbs and the sea give way to crisp, focused flavors of citrus, mineral and fresh herbs in this intense, distinctive white. Not a blockbuster, but a delicious food wine. Treixadura, Godello and others. Drink now. 3,000 ca —Thomas Matthews
Decadent and powerful, with a meaty, gamy aroma backed by deep plum and dark cherry flavors. Mocha and roasted notes fill the long finish, with plenty of licorice. Reminiscent of a Châteauneuf. Drink now. 12,062 cases made. —Kim Marcus
Dark, immense and deeply concentrated, with a complex, penetrating range of white pepper, beef carpaccio, plum and wild berry, supported by a firm, dry layer of tannins that make decanting a necessity. Best from 2007 through 2013. 880 cases made. —James Laube
