TURLEY Zinfandel California Old Vines 2002
89 points, $25
Ripe, intense and concentrated, with deftly balanced fruit and light cedary oak. The zesty cranberry and wild berry flavors are restrained and harmonious, giving you more flavor and depth than you might expect from a California appellation Zin. Drink now —James Laube

THELEMA Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2003
89 points, $25
Nice pear, toast and matchstick notes here, with a lengthy finish. A bit tight now, with the matchstick note dominating, but give it time to open in the cellar. Best from 2005 through 2007. 4,500 cases made. From South Africa. —James Molesworth

DOMINIO DEL PLATA Syrah-Bonarda Mendoza Crios de Susana Balbo 2003
89 points, $15
Lovely fruit here--plum and cassis--with sweet vanilla, violet and spice notes that add dimension. Round and creamy throughout, with a long, fruit-filled finish. Drink now through 2005. 4,500 cases made. From Argentina. —James Molesworth

BODEGAS MARTINEZ BUJANDA Garnacha Rioja Conde de Valdemar Reserva 1999
88 points, $27
This generous red shows good varietal character, with sweet cherry, raspberry and black pepper flavors, backed by vanilla oak notes. It's still fresh and has enough grip for food. Drink now. From Spain. —Thomas Matthews

PARAISO Syrah Santa Lucia Highlands 2003
90 points, $20
Intense and complex, with excellent concentration to black pepper, Asian five spice, black cherry, cola and beef flavors, underscored by cedar and coconut from toasty oak and a tangy structure that needs food to shine. Drink now through 2008. 1,790 cases —James Laube
