ETUDE Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2001
93 points, $90
A bold, rich, concentrated wine with lots of flavor dimensions and excellent structure. Dense and complex, with currant, anise, cedar and fresh earth flavors, it picks up chocolate and mocha on the finish, and should only get better over the next couple o —James Laube

POL ROGER Brut Champagne Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 1995
94 points, $190
Very tightly wound and racy, this packs citrus, hazelnut and vanilla pastry flavors into its medium-bodied frame. Well-integrated and dense, this has a long life ahead. Excellent lingering finish. Best from 2005 through 2015. From France. —Bruce Sanderson

PALOMA Merlot Spring Mountain District 2002
93 points, $51
Ripe, rich, juicy and polished, with layers of currant, black cherry and plum that are deeply concentrated, elegant and lively. A light overlay of toasty, mocha-scented oak adds another flavor dimension, and the flavors linger on a long, zesty aftertaste. —James Laube
