Dec. 21, 2004: PETER LEHMANN Shiraz Barossa Eight Songs 2000 (92 points, $55)

Dark, dense and powerful, juicy with ripe cherry, blackberry and tar flavors, hinting at exotic spice as the flavors persist on the muscular finish. Drink now through 2015. 3,000 cases made. From Australia. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 20, 2004: CHEVAL DES ANDES Vistalba 2002 (92 points, $70)

This is a finely sculpted wine, with a ripe, focused core of red currant, plum and blackberry fruit balanced by vanilla bean, coffee and smoke notes. Long and plush with fine-grained tannins carrying the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot —James Molesworth
