ALBAN Viognier Edna Valley Alban Estate Vineyard 2004
90 points, $38
Captures the essence of Viognier, with ripe, bright, vivid layers of buttery pear, tangerine, nectarine, melon and tropical fruit flavors. The finish keeps replaying the complex fruit, lively acidity and right dose of oak. Drink now through 2008. 530 case

RUDERA Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2003
90 points, $46
Big, burly style, with sage, black currant, coffee and mineral notes. Ambitious and full-bodied with a slightly firm finish that needs to soften in the cellar, but ripe acidity should allow for that. Drink now through 2008. 70 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Jan. 28, 2006
ROCCA Syrah Yountville 2002
90 points, $42
Very complete and deftly balanced, with a mix of ripe wild berry, spice and beef carpaccio, turning supple and creamy on the midpalate and finishing with a complex aftertaste of espresso bean and vanilla. Drink now through 2011. 550 cases made. —James Laube
Jan. 27, 2006
BERSANO Barolo Nirvasco 2001

You have to like the floral, plum and berry character in this young Barolo. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. It's subtle yet captivating. Well done. Best after 2008. 15,000 cases made. —James Suckling
Jan. 26, 2006
