ALLEGRINI Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2001
93 points, $78
A superclean, juicy Amarone, with concentrated dried black fruit and a well-concealed, smooth oak note. Full-bodied, with fine tannins that give the palate an elegant poise and prolong the fruity finish. Classy and refined, with a long finish. Drink now t —James Suckling

94 points, $145
Alluring, with beautiful notes of freshly crushed raspberry and blackberry layered with mocha, spice, graphite, incense and mineral notes. Long finish stays riveting thanks to superfine acidity. Malbec. Drink now through 2016. 263 cases made. —James Molesworth

ACHÁVAL-FERRER Quimera Mendoza 2004
93 points, $48
Racy, almost piercing, with graphite, violet, mineral and boysenberry notes rushing along fine tannins and acidity. Long finish, but on the tight side for now, so cellar. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2007 through 2014. —James Molesworth

DUTSCHKE Shiraz Barossa God's Hill Road 2001
91 points, $40
Smooth and focused, with rich blueberry and plum flavors at the core, shaded with peppermint and slightly earthy notes that linger along with the fruit on a long finish. Tannins are well-submerged. Drink now through 2015. 500 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

ALTA VISTA Alto Mendoza 2004
93 points, $60
Big and bold, with tar, loam and bittersweet cocoa holding the upper hand for now on a core of black currant and plum fruit. Yet plenty of ripe, imbedded tannins and fine acidity to carry through until it resolves itself fully. Flashy, and pulls it off. M —James Molesworth
