SHAFER Chardonnay Napa Valley Carneros Red Shoulder Ranch 2004
94 points, $43
Bold, ripe and delicious, with tiers of citrus-laced pear, pineapple, lemon drop and nectarine, yet for all its richness and depth, this is an elegantly styled wine that is graceful and polished. Drink now through 2009. 6,000 cases made. —James Laube

FORADORI Vigneti delle Dolomiti Granato 2003
93 points, $60
Gorgeous aromas of crushed fruit and fresh flowers. Turns to black licorice and berries. Full-bodied, with masses of fruit, fine tannins and a long, juicy finish. Give it a few years. Voluptuous. Best after 2008. 3,300 cases made. —James Suckling

PODERE BRIZIO Brunello di Montalcino 2003
92 points, $55
Complex aromas of prune, berry and lightly toasted oak follow through to a full-bodied palate, with very ripe underlying fruit, hints of vanilla and a long finish. Best ever from here. Best after 2008. 1,400 cases made. —James Suckling
Jul. 24, 2006
91 points, $50
Aromas of blackberry, chocolate and toasted oak follow through to a medium-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long, caressing finish. Refined and silky for the vintage. Best after 2007. 3,330 cases made. —James Suckling

PATZ & HALL Chardonnay Sonoma Valley Durell Vineyard 2004
93 points, $40
Enticing aromas of cedar and sandalwood lead to a rich, unctuous, concentrated core of Asian pear, hazelnut, fig and a hint of citrus. This broad-shouldered Chardonnay will benefit from short-term cellaring, as the finish is long, intense and layered. Bes —James Laube
