MOCALI Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2004

ENGELBRECHT-ELS Ernie Els Stellenbosch 2004

Well-built, with black currant, bacon, grilled herb, tobacco and fig flavors supported by a good, firm structure underneath. Excellent length, with the fruit and spice delivering another wave on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec —James Molesworth

RUDI SCHULTZ Syrah Stellenbosch 2004
92 points, $37
Offers a lovely beam of pure raspberry and boysenberry fruit, with hints of vanilla, mineral and kirsch on the long finish. Delivers a lot of fruit, with fine-grained tannins. Yet shows a minerally elegance. Drink now through 2008. 800 cases made. —James Molesworth

AILE D'ARGENT Bordeaux White 2003

Lots of lemon curd and apple character, with peach flavors. Full and waxy, offering lots of fruit and richness. Big and powerful. Needs time to come around. The best in years. Best after 2008. —James Suckling

SWITCHBACK RIDGE Petite Sirah Napa Valley Peterson Family Vineyard 2004
94 points, $52
Wow. Bold, ripe, rich and fleshy. Seductive in its own way, showing tiers of wild berry and blackberry, with hints of vanilla and spice. Packs in a wallop of fruit, yet it's remarkably elegant and polished for its size and variety. Drink now through 2012. —James Laube
