Jan. 31, 2005: J. WEGELER ERBEN Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2003 (89 points, $30)

A broad, rich spätlese, with spice and mineral notes underlying peach and citrus. Nicely balanced and tasty, with good concentration and length. Drink now through 2015. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 29, 2005: VIÑA SANTA RITA Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley Medalla Real Special Reserve 2002 (89 points, $18)

Powerful, with lots of smoke, cedar, loam, black currant and blackberry fruit flavors. Thick, burly tannins will need to resolve a bit, but this is a fine display of Maipo Cabernet. Drink now through 2007. 30,000 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Jan. 28, 2005: C. VON SCHUBERT Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Maximin Grünhäuser Herrenberg 2003 (89 points, $22)

A cascade of tropical fruit notes and a vibrant structure make this '03 Riesling very tasty. Slim in stature, yet intense in flavor, it lingers nicely, with an apple aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. 1,000 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 27, 2005: J. WEGELER ERBEN Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer 2003 (89 points, $24)

Here's a vibrant, citrus- and mineral-tinged white, still unevolved, yet with a firm structure and moderate density to its peach and mineral flavors. It shows promise for the future. Best from 2006 through 2015. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 26, 2005: VERAMONTE Primus Casablanca Valley 2002 (89 points, $16)

Nice dark berry and plum fruit here, with a note of sweet earth as well. Hints of smoke, dried herbs and cocoa expand on the finish. Nice fleshy texture throughout. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenère. Drink now through 2006. 16,200 cases made. From —James Molesworth
