Nov. 04, 2005: BODEGAS Y VIÑEDOS MARTÍN BERDUGO Ribera del Duero Barrica 2003 (89 points, $17)

Nov. 03, 2005: DOMINIO DE TARES Bierzo Cepas Viejas 2003 (90 points, $28)

Nov. 02, 2005: BODEGAS ALEJANDRO FERNANDEZ Ribera del Duero Pesquera 2003 (90 points, $28)

Luscious fruit flavors of blackberry and blueberry adorn a solid structure of firm tannins, well-integrated toasty oak and just enough acidity for balance in this vivid red. Like a farmer dressed for a night on the town. Drink now through 2011. 40,000 cas —Thomas Matthews

Nov. 01, 2005: CHATEAU ST. JEAN Chardonnay Alexander Valley Robert Young Vineyard 2003 (90 points, $25)
