SANCTUM Shiraz Western Cape 2003
91 points, $65
Very stylish, with Kenyan coffee bean and bittersweet cocoa notes framing ripe blackberry and cassis fruit. Tangy mineral and white pepper hints peek in on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2007. 65 cases imported. —James Molesworth

GEANTET-PANSIOT Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2003
92 points, $50
A touch gamy in aroma, but there's also sweet cherry and spice notes. This is more rustic in style, with assertive tannins and moderate acidity, concluding with a lasting impression of sweet fruit. Be patient with this one. Best from 2008 through 2018. —Bruce Sanderson

RUSTENBERG Five Soldiers Stellenbosch 2003
91 points, $35
Bold style, with layers of fig, hazelnut, quince, pear and mineral flavor. Long and smoky through the creamy finish. A big, crowd-pleasing style. Chardonnay. Drink now through 2007. 150 cases imported. —James Molesworth
Jan. 07, 2006
ELVIO COGNO Barolo Vigna Elena 2000
91 points, $73
Exotic aromas of blackberries, hints of raisins and Indian spices. Full and rich, with sweet fruit and very velvety tannins. Delicious but better with time. Best after 2008. 830 cases made. —James Suckling
Jan. 06, 2006
TWO HANDS Shiraz Heathcote Max's Garden 2004
91 points, $50
Definitely on the tart side, with raging acidity against plum and prune flavors, finishing with a freshness that's tremendously appealing and should develop well with cellaring. Best from 2007 through 2015. 500 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
