DUTSCHKE Shiraz Barossa Valley Oscar Semmler 2003
92 points, $60
Dark and juicy, a dense mouthful of berry and spice flavors, picking up an earthy note as the finish persists impressively against ultrafine tannins. Has intense power but it ends up being graceful. Drink now through 2013. 300 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
Dec. 07, 2005
RENÉ ENGEL Échézeaux 2002
93 points, $110
Crisp and fruit-driven, with a chocolate edge to its cherry and spice notes. The tannins come in on the finish. It's hard to get a sense of the depth here; there's still a lot of oak showing and its tight on the finish. Best from 2008 through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 06, 2005
VIÑA COBOS Malbec Mendoza Bramare 2003
93 points, $85
Gorgeous fruit--fig, plum, black currant--all layered with suave mocha-infused toast, mineral, loam and dark chocolate flavors. Long and very deep on the finish, with the fruit cruising effortlessly. Drink now through 2011. 765 cases made. —James Molesworth
Dec. 05, 2005
TAITTINGER Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Comtes de Champagne 1995
95 points, $140
Toast and graphite flavors highlight this elegant, graceful blanc de blancs. It has a subtle power driving the candied berry and dried citrus notes, with a touch of pastry and the ever-present mineral. Fine harmony and finish. Drink now through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 03, 2005
DE VENOGE Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne 1998
92 points, $65
A strong graphite component marks this blanc de blancs, whose rich texture and fine mousse offer flesh for its honeysuckle, baking bread and hazelnut notes. It has power and finesse. Drink now through 2010. 1,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
