BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS O. Fournier ACrux Uco Valley 2001
91 points, $44
Dark and inviting with heady black currant, blackberry, coffee bean and bittersweet cocoa aromas and flavors that course through a full-bodied, dense and powerful finish. Still a bit tight in the end, so let this emerge with cellaring. Big wine. Tempranil —James Molesworth

BODEGA NORTON Perdriel Single Vineyard Mendoza 2001
92 points, $60
This is a tightly wound and heavily toasted wine, but there's a terrific beam of racy raspberry ganache and blackberry compote flavors at its core. Long and powerful through the finish, and driven by ripe acidity, this should blossom after some cellaring. —James Molesworth
Oct. 22, 2004
BODEGAS OSTATU Rioja Gloria de Ostatu 2001
92 points, $80
Alluring aromas of black cherry and smoke follow through on the palate in this solid red, then linger on the smoky finish. It shows traditional flavors--tobacco, spice, tea--but has the focus and depth of the modern style. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 ca —Thomas Matthews
Oct. 21, 2004
DOMAINE TEMPIER Bandol Cuvée Spéciale 2001
92 points, $32
Rich and ripe with plenty of muscle and fine-grained tannins, as well as a decadent meaty aroma. Flavors of dark plum, leather, blackberry and spice are broad and mouth-filling. Chocolate, mineral and smoky notes fill the finish. Drink now through 2008. —Kim Marcus
Oct. 20, 2004
LUCE DELLA VITE Toscana Luce 2001
92 points, $75
Plenty of blackberry and fresh leather aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate, with fine tannins and a long caressing finish. This is a seductive, ultrarefined wine. This firmly places Luce in the big leagues. Well done. Best after 2005. 7,300 case —James Suckling
