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)

A rich, seductive style that weaves together a mix of ripe apple, pear, peach and lemony citrus flavors. Light toasty oak joins in on the finish, with a touch of pineapple, vanilla and nutmeg that lingers. Drink now through 2008. 3,640 cases made. —James Laube

Oct. 31, 2005: ALLEGRINI Verona La Grola 2001 (89 points, $22)

Enticing nose, with currants, light spice, barbecued meat and violets. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a spicy, minerally finish. Chewy and rich. Always very good. Best after 2005. 18,900 cases made.

Oct. 29, 2005: M. LAPIERRE Morgon 2003 (89 points, $25)

Reduced aromas at first, give way to lovely plum, fruitcake and spice aromas and flavors. Firm-edged tannins drive the finish, while the fruit lingers nicely. A rare age-worthy Beaujolais. Drink now through 2007. —James Molesworth

Oct. 28, 2005: SENSI Sangiovese Toscana Gramole 2001 (90 points, $28)

Gorgeous aromas of cherries, berries and light spices. Full-bodied, concentrated yet refined and silky. Very long. Drink now. 3,000 cases made. —James Suckling
