AKARUA Pinot Noir Central Otago Bannockburn 2003
92 points, $40
Tangy, lively and remarkably generous with its pure blueberry, plum and explosively spicy aromas and flavors that burst across the palate. Has tremendous character but it's not excessively weighty. Yummy stuff. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

DE VENOGE Brut Champagne Millésimé 1995
92 points, $65
A bold '95, slightly coarse in texture, yet full of whole-grain bread, berry and honey flavors. It's mouthfilling, full-bodied and ends with a tactile sensation on the finish. Lingering mineral aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. 4,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
Nov. 23, 2005
DOMINIO DE PINGUS Ribera del Duero Flor de Pingus 2003
92 points, $50
Lavish oak frames plush, ripe fruit in this modern red. Plum, blackberry, mineral and coffee flavors mingle harmoniously, backed by round, ripe tannins. Perhaps a bit oaky for some, but expressive and seductive. Drink now through 2011. 4,000 cases made. —Thomas Matthews
Nov. 22, 2005
QUINTA DO VALE MEÃO Douro 2001
93 points, $50
Broad, rich and and deeply flavored red, with loads of mouthfilling dark plum, raspberry, cocoa and Vienna roast flavors. This shows an elegant side as well, which emerges on the long, long finish with mole and spice elements. Drink now through 2008. 4,80 —Kim Marcus
Nov. 21, 2005
JACQUESSON Extra Brut Champagne Avize Signature 1996
92 points, $75
A combination of intensity and finesse, this vinous style is dry, with biscuit, lemon, honey and almond flavors. It's firmly structured and creamy, with a touch of austerity on the finish. A Champagne for food. Drink now through 2012. 7,750 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
