STORYBOOK MOUNTAIN Zinfandel Napa Valley Mayacamas Range 2002
88 points, $28
Smooth, with a pretty oak core that folds in well, with vibrant wild berry and minty sage notes, finishing with a dry aftertaste that shows an edge of bramble. Drink now through 2008. 4,000 cases made. —James Laube

RED NOTE Costières de Nîmes 2003
88 points, $20
Throwback style, with lots of grilled meat, herb, black cherry, tar and sanguine flavors. Racy and dark through the finish. Lots of character here. Syrah and Grenache. Drink now through 2006. 1,050 cases made. —James Molesworth

MEERLUST Merlot Stellenbosch 2000
88 points, $24
Still has life (surprisingly) with ripe red currant and black cherry fruit supported by alluring cocoa and toast notes. Nice mineral and toast notes on the fleshy finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

LOMAS DEL VALLE Malbec Mendoza Kaiken Ultra 2003
88 points, $23
Very good raspberry and blackberry fruit, but the toast is a bit heavy, turning to cinnamon and coffee in the end, leaving a slightly rigid feel. Plenty of fruit though; this should come around with brief cellaring. Drink now through 2007. 5,000 cases mad —James Molesworth

FLORA SPRINGS Merlot Napa Valley 2003
88 points, $25
Scents of black cherry and blackberry, with a dash of cedar and anise. This shows a strong presence of rich, chewy tannins; a very complex, concentrated and well-structured Merlot. Decant. Best from 2006 through 2011. 7,400 cases made. —James Laube
