VON STRASSER Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain District Estate Vineyard 2004
92 points, $70
Deep, rich and expansive, with mouthcoating layers of earthy currant, cedar, herb, sage and mineral. A big-shouldered wine that's firm and tannic, yet has a seam of elegance and finesse. Decant. Drink now through 2013. 764 cases made. —James Laube

CHALK HILL Chardonnay Chalk Hill 2005
92 points, $45
A rich, complex style, with excellent depth to the mix of ripe pear, fig and spice notes. Pretty toasty oak is also evident, yet for all the richness this is quite elegant. Drink now through 2009. 15,500 cases made. —James Laube

HANZELL Chardonnay Sonoma Valley 2004
92 points, $65
Shows terrific aromas, serving up a beam of citrus-infused pear, apple and melon fruit, enlivened by firm acidity. The finish sails on, revealing a tight band of fruit. Very impressive. This is a wine with a track record for aging. Drink now through 2013.
