VALL LLACH Priorat 2001
95 points, $80
This is a rich and powerful red from Spain. There's ripe black fruit, plenty of chocolate-scented oak and masses of tannin in this structured red. It's a big, solid, S.U.V. of a wine, but has balance and concentration, and will improve with age. Best afte —Thomas Matthews

95 points, $45
Gorgeous stuff, ripe and open, layered with exotic spice-scented plum, cherry and saffron, peppery notes that linger enticingly on the long, extraordinarily well-formed peacock's tail of a finish. Drink now through 2011. 196 cases made. Highly Recommended —Harvey Steiman

DIDIER DAGUENEAU Pouilly-Fumé Pur Sang 2002
96 points, $60
Great richness in this Sauvignon Blanc, from one of the Loire Valley's masters, with alluring smoke and blanched almond notes enveloping a core of candied citrus peel, lanolin, macadamia nut, coconut and wet straw flavors. But it's still steely as well, w —James Molesworth
