BUITENVERWACHTING Sauvignon Blanc Constantia 2003
90 points, $15
Racy Sauvignon, with distinct chalk, lime, herb and chive flavors, and hints of white peach and honeysuckle emerging on the finish. Deceptively concentrated, this should develop nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2004. 10,000 cases made. Smart Buys. —James Molesworth

BODEGAS AS LAXAS Albariño Rias Baixas 2002
88 points, $17
From Spain comes this version of the Albariño grape. It's rich and deep, structured and austere, offering melon, smoke, mineral and honey flavors and a long, smoky finish. Better with food than as an aperitif. Drink now through 2005. 15,000 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

NEIL ELLIS Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2001
90 points, $20
There's plenty of raspberry, chocolate and toast notes in this South African Cabernet, with hints of mocha and spice emerging on the finish. Has an herbal edge, but it stretches out nicely while maintaining its drive. Drink now through 2007. 4,000 cases m —James Molesworth

KANONKOP Pinotage Simonsberg-Stellenbosch 2001
91 points, $28
From South Africa comes this impressive red, with meat and bacony smoke intertwined with rich black cherry, cassis and currant fruit. Long and lush, with dark chocolate notes on the finish. A powerful red with character. The standard-bearer for this grape —James Molesworth

ROSENBLUM Zinfandel San Francisco Bay Carla's Vineyards 2001
92 points, $23
Dark and chocolaty, with zesty wild berry and blackberry fruit and lots of spice and espresso scents. The long, rich, concentrated aftertaste showcases the exotic fruit flavors. Drink now through 2008. 2,100 cases made. Smart Buys. —James Laube
