WOLF BLASS Black Label Langhorne Creek-Barossa Valley-Coonawarra 2003
93 points, $70
Dark and dense, with blackberry, black cherry and licorice flavors working together to power through a fine curtain of tannins, melding harmoniously on the long, vibrant finish. Bordering on plush, this just needs some cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shira —Harvey Steiman

JOSEPH DROUHIN Puligny-Montrachet Folatières 2005
92 points, $85
This has a firm spine of acidity, but also good richness, providing a backdrop for the lemon, hazelnut and vanilla flavors to stretch out across the palate. There's nice harmony, followed by a long aftertaste of toast and spice. Best from 2008 through 201 —Bruce Sanderson
