PENFOLDS Cabernet-Shiraz South Australia Bin 389 2002
89 points, $25

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

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

CHÂTEAU PIERRE-BISE Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu L'Anclaie 2003
90 points, $28/500ml
Rich, with bold orange peel, nectarine, maple glaze and pear tartine aromas and flavors. Sweet and powerful on the finish. For fans of in-your-face sweeties. Drink now through 2010. —James Molesworth

DOMAINE COULANGE Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2003
89 points, $25
Thick and powerful, with a wall of cocoa and toast hiding the core of black cherry and black currant fruit. Rich, muscular finish is pounded home by tannins, but this has the stuffing to offset it. Just needs a little time. Grenache, Syrah and Carignane. —James Molesworth
