BERNARDUS Chardonnay Monterey County 2003
88 points, $20
Rich, in an understated style, with a mix of ripe pear, fig and apricot flavors shaded by light toasty oak that gives it a slight butterscotch edge, gaining complexity on the finish. Drink now. 25,000 cases made. —James Laube

DOMAINE RICHAUD Côtes du Rhône-Villages Cairanne 2003

W.H. SMITH WINES Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2004
89 points, $24
Ripe and zesty, with a tasty range of wild berry and blackberry fruit that's well-defined. Turns elegant and supple on the palate, with enough tannin to merit short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2008. 1,467 cases made. —James Laube
Aug. 23, 2005
JEAN-MAURICE RAFFAULT Chinon Clos d'Isoré 2003
89 points, $18
Not as opulent as most '03 reds, as mineral, chalk and olive notes lead the way for black cherry and briar flavors. Nice, firm, tobacco-tinged finish. Drink now through 2006. 1,200 cases made. —James Molesworth
