DOMAINE LA CROIX BELLE St.-Chinian 2003
88 points, $15
Fragrant and fruity, with firm, lip-smacking flavors of blackberry, blueberry and a minerally component as well. Tannic finish, but within bounds, and filled with lots of dark chocolate notes. Drink now through 2010. 4,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus
Jul. 28, 2006
CHATEAU STE. MICHELLE Chardonnay Columbia Valley Cold Creek Vineyard 2004
90 points, $22
Lithe, spicy and generous with its pineapple-centered flavors, offering hints of pear and apricot as the finish lingers enticingly. Drink now. 3,600 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
Jul. 27, 2006
COLUMBIA Syrah Yakima Valley Red Willow Vineyard 2001
90 points, $30
Wrapped in a cloak of subtle spice, black pepper and fine-grained tannins that let the blackberry and huckleberry fruit emerge slowly. The finish persists impressively. Best from 2008 through 2013. 2,100 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
Jul. 26, 2006
SONOMA-LOEB Chardonnay Sonoma County Private Reserve 2004
91 points, $30
Firm and vibrant, with a rich, expansive core of spicy pear, hazelnut, tangerine and anise that fans out gracefully on the palate, holding a tight focus and delivering a long aftertaste. Drink now through 2009. 2,500 cases made. —James Laube
Jul. 25, 2006
DOMINIO DEL PLATA Malbec Mendoza BenMarco 2003
90 points, $20
This is concentrated, but bright and open, with lots of raspberry and red currant fruit supported gently by modest toast and mineral notes. Long, driven finish. Relies on purity instead of power. Drink now through 2008. 4,500 cases made. —James Molesworth
