A touch gamy in aroma, but there's also sweet cherry and spice notes. This is more rustic in style, with assertive tannins and moderate acidity, concluding with a lasting impression of sweet fruit. Be patient with this one. Best from 2008 through 2018. —Bruce Sanderson
Bold style, with layers of fig, hazelnut, quince, pear and mineral flavor. Long and smoky through the creamy finish. A big, crowd-pleasing style. Chardonnay. Drink now through 2007. 150 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Exotic aromas of blackberries, hints of raisins and Indian spices. Full and rich, with sweet fruit and very velvety tannins. Delicious but better with time. Best after 2008. 830 cases made. —James Suckling
Definitely on the tart side, with raging acidity against plum and prune flavors, finishing with a freshness that's tremendously appealing and should develop well with cellaring. Best from 2007 through 2015. 500 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
This gushes with chocolate-covered cherry, plum and blackberry fruit, but never gets jammy thanks to racy acidity and plenty of tobacco, iron and tar flavors. Long, vibrant finish. Drink now through 2015. 700 cases made. —James Molesworth
