daily wine picks

$15 to $30

Sep. 20, 2005: CLINE Zinfandel Contra Costa County Live Oak 2003 (89 points, $25)

Oodles of eucalyptus, but excellent concentration to the dark chocolate, black cherry, dried berry and espresso bean oak. Tannins are a tad surly, but it ends on a supple, harmonious note. Drink now through 2009. 1,285 cases made. —James Laube

Sep. 19, 2005: CHÂTEAU PIERRE-BISE Coteaux du Layon-Beaulieu L'Anclaie 2003 (90 points, $28/500ml)

Rich, with bold orange peel, nectarine, maple glaze and pear tartine aromas and flavors. Sweet and powerful on the finish. For fans of in-your-face sweeties. Drink now through 2010. —James Molesworth

Sep. 17, 2005: DOMAINE COULANGE Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2003 (89 points, $25)

Thick and powerful, with a wall of cocoa and toast hiding the core of black cherry and black currant fruit. Rich, muscular finish is pounded home by tannins, but this has the stuffing to offset it. Just needs a little time. Grenache, Syrah and Carignane. —James Molesworth

Sep. 16, 2005: CHÂTEAU DE COULAINE Chinon Bonnaventure 2003 (89 points, $18)

Juicy, with dark cherry, briar, olive paste and iron notes. Smoky finish, with fresh acidity. Shows the ripeness of the vintage, but stays true to type. Drink now through 2006. —James Molesworth

Sep. 15, 2005: CHÂTEAU LAMARTINE Cahors 2003 (89 points, $15)

Firm, rich mouthfilling red from southwest France. A touch of elegance as well, with intense currant, dark plum and cassis flavors. Crisp finish of spiced meat. Drink now through 2008. 8,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus
