$15 to $30

Jan. 02, 2006: ARROWOOD Côte de Lune White Saralee's Vineyard Russian River Valley 2004 (88 points, $20)

Wonderful complexity in the aromas and flavors, with rich, concentrated fig, melon, apricot, ripe pear and lots of exotic spice notes and floral scents. Roussanne, Marsanne and Viognier. Drink now through 2007. 382 cases made.

Dec. 31, 2005: LES CLOS DE PAULILLES Banyuls Rimage 2003 (90 points, $22/500ml)

Rich dessert red, with loads of dark plum, cassis and plum pudding flavors. Reminiscent of an LBV Port, with good grip, a firm structure and a lasting finish of molten chocolate. Drink now through 2012. 1,600 cases imported. —Kim Marcus

Dec. 30, 2005: KELLER Chardonnay Sonoma Coast La Cruz Vineyard 2003 (90 points, $29)

The fruit stars in this sleek, refreshing wine, with a beam of green apple, melon, lemon and light hazelnut shadings. Drink now through 2008. 2,859 cases made. —James Laube

Dec. 29, 2005: MICHEL & STÉPHANE OGIER Syrah Vin de Pays des Collines Rhodaniennes La Rosine 2003 (89 points, $27)

Big nose of blackberry, game, lavender flower and toast, with ripe fruit and toast flavors gliding along the palate. Ripe, smoky finish is embedded with terroir. Côte-Rôtie in all but name. Drink now through 2006. —James Molesworth

Dec. 28, 2005: SELBACH-OSTER Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer 2004 (89 points, $23)

A drier kabinett, this offsets its peach note and lush texture with bracing acidity and a mineral streak. A little reserved now, yet this should really hit its stride in 5 to 7 years. Best from 2009 through 2022. —Bruce Sanderson
