VIÑA CASA SILVA Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley Los Lingues Single Vineyard Reserve 2001
90 points, $15
Big-boned red, with powerful cassis, plum and blackberry fruit and plenty of muscular smoke, licorice, iron, dark chocolate and mint notes. Thick, gutsy finish. Wins on power, not polish, but has lots of character. Drink now through 2006. 8,000 cases made —James Molesworth

WARWICK Sauvignon Blanc Simonsberg-Stellenbosch Professor Black 2003
91 points, $16
From South Africa, this is very rich for a Sauvignon, with lemon curd, straw, fig and peach flavors that are ripe and lush. Yet there's ample stone and mineral underpinning it all, and a fine, zesty finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made. Smart Buys. —James Molesworth
