Oct. 25, 2004: FONTERUTOLI Toscana Badiola 2002 (87 points, $14)

Nice flowers and berries on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a meaty berry aftertaste. A good Cab and Merlot blend. Primarily from grapes at the Mazzei family's Maremma property. Best after 2005. 16,665 cases made. From Italy. —James Suckling

Oct. 22, 2004: FILLIATREAU Saumur Château Fouquet 2002 (87 points, $14)

Solid black cherry and currant fruit here, with a nice minerally spine that takes over on the mouthwatering finish. Begs for food. Drink now through 2005. From France. —James Molesworth

Oct. 21, 2004: BODEGA NORTON Barbera Mendoza 2003 (88 points, $10)

Bright, high-toned red fruits here--raspberry and red cherry--with vanilla, spice and mineral shadings. Sweet, plush finish lets the fruit take an encore. Nicely done. Drink now through 2005. 3,000 cases made. From Argentina. —James Molesworth

Oct. 20, 2004: PAUL HOBBS SELECTIONS Merlot Mendoza LaGarto 2003 (88 points, $13)

Quite jammy, with raspberry and blackberry fruit and ample toast, but there's enough fresh acidity here to keep it defined and focused. A fruit-filled version that will have a lot of fans. Drink now through 2005. 1,325 cases made. From Argentina. —James Molesworth

Oct. 19, 2004: BODEGAS ESCORIHUELA Syrah Mendoza Don Miguel Gascón 2003 (88 points, $12)

Dark plum and blackberry fruit here, with coffee and toast notes as well. Nice gamy hint peeks in from the background, while the fruit takes over on the finish. Nicely done. Drink now through 2005. 1,000 cases imported. From Argentina. —James Molesworth
