BODEGAS SIERRA CANTABRIA Rioja Finca El Bosque 2002
93 points, $142
This plush, international-style red is rich with ripe black fruit and sweet oak. Ripe tannins are well-integrated, and it goes down like velvet, with a long finish of blackberry and lilac. Seamless. Drink now through 2010. 50 cases imported. —Thomas Matthews

FRANÇOIS RAVENEAU Chablis Butteaux 2002
94 points, $99
Succulent, with a hint of oak masking a mineral element now, yet intense and focused, with honey, apple, lemon and spice flavors. Builds on the palate and improves with air. Fine length. Needs time. Best from 2007 through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson

AMON-RA Shiraz Barossa Valley 2003
93 points, $68
Firm, but remarkably generous and pure, with richly articulated cherry, raspberry jam and licorice flavors that linger impressively on the meaty finish. Needs time to sort itself out. Best after 2008. 400 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

BODEGAS SIERRA CANTABRIA Rioja Amancio 2001
96 points, $142
A ravishing red wine. Dominates the palate, with muscular tannins and mouthfilling flavors of plum, blackberry, coffee and dark chocolate. It has it all: superripe fruit, lavish oak, heady alcohol and a finish that just won't quit. Quite a departure from —Thomas Matthews

DUTSCHKE Shiraz Barossa Valley St. Jakobi 2002
94 points, $40
Ripe, concentrated and beautifully shaped. A rich panoply of cherry, berry, plum, mineral and licorice that sails on and on. Balanced with just enough juicy acidity to keep it honest. Smoothly integrated oak and refined tannins. Best from 2007 through 202 —Harvey Steiman
