ORIEL Côtes du Rhône Courant 2003
89 points, $15
This is Côtes du Rhône? Thick and crammed with dark plum and currant fruit, along with tar, cocoa and mineral notes. A bit of a brute now, but this should blossom in time for fall barbecue fare. Drink now through 2006. Tasted twice, with consistent note —James Molesworth

DOMAINE COURBIS St.-Joseph White 2003

BODEGAS ALEJANDRO FERNANDEZ La Mancha El Vínculo Crianza 2002
89 points, $25
This dark-colored wine is brimming with dark flavors--earth, mineral, plum, coffee--that mingle effortlessly in a racy texture. The fine tannins and smoky oak are well-integrated, and the wine dances to a long, smoky finish. Drink now through 2010. —Thomas Matthews
