Feb. 11, 2005: LA PLAYA Colchagua Valley Estate Reserve 2001 (85 points, $10)

This has some flashy vanilla and chocolate-covered cherry flavors, with a very smooth texture, but for all its up-front flash, it lacks density and flesh in the end, finishing on a faint candied note. Drink now. 3,800 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Textbook Pinot, with ripe red and black cherry fruit supported by some sweet smoke and spice notes. Nice texture too. Drink now. 600 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth

A good Dolcetto, with plenty of plum, berry and mineral character. Drink now. 580 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Feb. 08, 2005: CASTELLO DI NEIVE Barbera d'Alba Santo Stefano 2003 (86 points, $14)
