MÄHLER-BESSE Toro Oro Reserva 1994
91 points, $18
This traditional red shows an intriguing mix of spice, raisin, cigar and mineral flavors over a thick, firm texture. Hints of earth and mushroom betray its age, but it still has power and focus. An impressive throwback. Drink now through 2009. 1,500 cases —Thomas Matthews

CHÂTEAU COUPE ROSES Minervois Cuvée Vignals 2003
91 points, $16
Firm and intense, with plenty of stuffing, in a Châteauneuf style. It has a gamy, fruity aroma and layers of plum, dark cherry, smoke and spice flavors. Pepper-steak notes provided depth on the finish. Tempting now. Best from 2006 through 2009. 600 cases —Kim Marcus

STEELE Chardonnay Carneros Sangiacomo Vineyard 2001

CAVEN Valtellina Superiore Inferno Al Carmine 2001

PIERRE SOULEZ Savennières Château de Chamboureau Cuvée d'Avant 2001
