/ This is an impressive wine. It shows serious depth and power, but also remarkable subtlety and balance. It was aged entirely in new French barriques, but shows its oak only as an accent, not as a primary note. The dark berry fruit is extremely appealing, as are the accents of toast, dried herbs and fresh mushrooms.

/ "Whalebone Vineyard". Fine, elegant, beautifully focused, a supple, refined mouthful of black cherry, dark plum and dusky spices, persisting gently on the long, polished finish. GORGEOUS STUFF AND IT SHOULD DO NOTHING BUT IMPROVE.

First look at our editor's most exciting new wines/ Distinctively spicy, with warm, earthy overtones to the beautifully framed currant, black cherry and nutmeg aromas and flavors, finishing with generosity, impressive length and harmony against firm tannins. Needs time to gain some flesh, but this should be a beauty. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2008 through 2016.

/ Brian Croser, with Champagne Bollinger, has renovated the 30-year-old Whalebone Vineyard they bought in 2007. A leafy Cabernet Franc nose gives way to spicy Cab-Shiraz fruit while remaining velvety and silky. A triumph.

/ Nose chalky, minty, coffee, liquorice, spice. Palate fresh, crisply acidic, mid-weight, spicy oak. Noticeable alcohol. Very sweet fruit. Up to 2010.

/ Lovely, dark chocolatey aromas. Concentrated, with some ripe black fruit and a toasty finish. Up to 5 years.

Three producers who have succeeded in branching out/ In this case, Jean-Michel Cazes teams up with the Bollinger family in Champagne and Brian Croser of Australia to make an incredibly intense blend of cabernet sauvignon, shiraz and cabernet franc. Blackberries, currants, cassis and mocha make for a concentrated, broadly flavored wine.
