HEITZ Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1995
90 points, $27
From a winery with a track record for top-flight Cali Cab comes this outstanding '95. Smooth, rich and polished, with pretty black cherry, currant, chocolate, anise, sage and cedar notes. Finishes with a complex aftertaste and firm tannins. Best from 2001 —James Laube

TRINITY HILL Sauvignon Blanc Hawkes Bay Shepherds Croft 1999
88 points, $16
From New Zealand comes this moderately-priced Sauvignon Blanc. Light, bright and zingy, this is appealing for its pure apple, citrus and pear flavors that linger on the bright finish. Drink now. 4,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

THOMAS FOGARTY Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 1997
90 points, $20

BRANCOTT Chardonnay Gisborne Reserve 1998
90 points, $16
This New Zealand Chardonnay is bright, jazzy and lively, with citrus-scented pear, guava and apple flavors that practically jump out on the finish. The texture remains silky and refined throughout. Drink now through 2003. 5,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

PENFOLDS Shiraz South Australia Kalimna Bin 28 1996
90 points, $25
This Australian Shiraz is a beguiling combination of rich, almost decadent flavors on an upright frame that has a nicely buried backbone of acidity and tannin. Nothing is obtrusive, everything is in graceful balance, leaving an ultimate impression of both —Harvey Steiman
