BETHEL HEIGHTS Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2002
90 points, $25
Firm and nicely focused to show its peppery black cherry flavors, balanced well with fine tannins and just enough acidity to give it zest. Finishes with a floral, cedary touch. Cries out for food. Roast chicken anyone? Drink now through 2009. 1,596 cases —Harvey Steiman

MULDERBOSCH Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch 2004
91 points, $20
Lean and racy, with tightly wound lime, chive, chalk and sweet pea notes that will need some moderate cellaring to fully unwind. Crisp, chiseled finish is really mouthwatering. Drink now through 2006. From South Africa. —James Molesworth
Dec. 01, 2004
VIÑA MAMBRILLA Ribera del Duero Alidis Crianza 2001
91 points, $27
Ripeness and power. A thick texture and chewy tannins give this red a monolithic aspect, but there's a core of plum, prune and blackberry fruit, and the coffee-scented oak is well-integrated. Impressive but reserved. Best after 2005. 3,250 cases made. Fr —Thomas Matthews

MAS MARTINET VITICULTORS Priorat Martinet Bru 2002
90 points, $27
Rich, pure flavors of raspberry and cherry jam are framed by chocolate notes in this alluring red. It has firm, well-integrated tannins and enough acidity to keep it lively. Voluptuous yet balanced. Drink now through 2012. From Spain. —Thomas Matthews
Nov. 29, 2004
VIÑA SANTA EMA Catalina Rapel Valley 2001
90 points, $28
This is a solidly built version with raspberry, boysenberry and currant fruit coursing along ripe, sweet tannins and powered by chocolate and toast notes. Round, rich, powerful finish. Could be aged a touch too, before it really hits its stride. Cabernet —James Molesworth
