LANDMARK Syrah Sonoma Valley Steel Plow El Farolito Vineyard 2002
90 points, $22
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
May. 17, 2005
FRÉDÉRIC ESMONIN Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur 2002

BENNETT LANE Maximus Napa Valley 2002
90 points, $28
Ripe, intense and concentrated, with loamy earth, ripe currant and wild berry. Shows hints of cedar, anise and sage and chewy tannins. Finishes with a bit of heat, but that's a minor point given all the flavor. Much to admire, including the price. Caberne —James Laube

DE TRAFFORD Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch 2003

WOLF BLASS Chardonnay Adelaide Hills Gold Label 2004
