IL POGGIONE Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1999
95 points, $85

E. GUIGAL Ermitage White Ex Voto 2001
93 points, $200
Packed with mango, peach, melon and macadamia nut flavors, this maintains terrific focus and intensity through the long, ripe, butter- and toast-filled finish. Almost tannic, with the spine for serious cellaring. Drink now through 2012. 700 cases made. —James Molesworth

CLARENDON HILLS Grenache Clarendon Kangarilla 2003
93 points, $80
Tight, smoothly polished and bursting with raspberry, blackberry, plum and sweet spice flavors that emerge with disarming simplicity but just expand on the palate, finishing seamless and beautifully balanced to last and last. Drink now through 2012. 1,200 —Harvey Steiman

BERT SIMON (HERRENBERG) Riesling Auslese Gold Cap Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Serrig Würtzberg 2003

Nascent, very fresh, concentrated and marked by honey, peach, licorice and mineral notes. Intense and extremely young, with terrific balance and a long, lingering aftertaste of fruit cocktail. Best from 2008 through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson

CLARENDON HILLS Syrah Clarendon Mortiz 2003
93 points, $90
Ripe, round and plush, with explosive black cherry, blackberry and exotic spice flavors that rush across the palate like a torrent, finishing with refined tannins and tremendous length. A serious wine that needs time to settle into itself. Best from 2008 —Harvey Steiman
