ANTIYAL Maipo Valley Kuyen 2004
89 points, $22
Ripe, dark fruit—plum, currant and fig—is layered with smoky toast, loam and mineral notes. Structured finish needs to unwind a bit, but there's lots of stuffing. Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2008. 1,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

Very racy, with lots of chalk, lemon zest and honeysuckle notes that ripple through a refreshing finish. Drink now. 9,500 cases made. —James Molesworth

CONCHA Y TORO Merlot Peumo Marqués de Casa Concha 2004
89 points, $19
Starts with flashy toast, but also shows good cassis and plum fruit, backed by a nice varietal note of grilled herb on the finish. Drink now through 2007. 38,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

MARQUIS PHILIPS Merlot South Eastern Australia 2004
88 points, $18
Smooth and velvety, with something in the flavor range that's reminiscent of tequila, not alcoholic but with pleasant currant and cherry fruit to balance. Drink now through 2008. 5,272 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

VIÑA MONTES Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley Alpha Apalta Vineyard 2004
89 points, $25
A good, solid beam of red currant and blackberry fruit is layered with cocoa, grilled herb and toast. Slightly firm finish from the toast, but plenty of flesh. Should fill out nicely in the near term. Drink now through 2008. 26,000 cases made. —James Molesworth
