VIÑA MEIN Ribeiro 2003
90 points, $19
Alluring aromas of minerals, wild herbs and the sea give way to crisp, focused flavors of citrus, mineral and fresh herbs in this intense, distinctive white. Not a blockbuster, but a delicious food wine. Treixadura, Godello and others. Drink now. 3,000 ca —Thomas Matthews

CORTES DE CÍMA Touriga Nacional Alentejo 2002
91 points, $20
Decadent and powerful, with a meaty, gamy aroma backed by deep plum and dark cherry flavors. Mocha and roasted notes fill the long finish, with plenty of licorice. Reminiscent of a Châteauneuf. Drink now. 12,062 cases made. —Kim Marcus

90 points, $22
Dark, immense and deeply concentrated, with a complex, penetrating range of white pepper, beef carpaccio, plum and wild berry, supported by a firm, dry layer of tannins that make decanting a necessity. Best from 2007 through 2013. 880 cases made. —James Laube

FRÉDÉRIC ESMONIN Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur 2002

BENNETT LANE Maximus Napa Valley 2002
90 points, $28
Ripe, intense and concentrated, with loamy earth, ripe currant and wild berry. Shows hints of cedar, anise and sage and chewy tannins. Finishes with a bit of heat, but that's a minor point given all the flavor. Much to admire, including the price. Caberne —James Laube
