daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Nov. 21, 2005: QUINTA DO VALE MEÃO Douro Meandro 2002 (89 points, $20)

Sinewy, with well-structured flavors of dark plum, French roast, mineral and tobacco leaf. If you are tired of the oaky, jammy style and are looking for a distinctive flavor profile, this is your wine. Drink now through 2007. 6,916 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Nov. 19, 2005: BODEGAS HNOS. PÉREZ PASCUAS Ribera del Duero Viña Pedrosa 2003 (89 points, $22)

Floral and berry notes accent the core of black cherry fruit and give this red a distinctive elegance, backed by lively acidity, firm but fine tannins and smoky oak. It's balanced and graceful. Drink now through 2009. 10,800 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

Nov. 18, 2005: DOMAINE DE MONTAHUC Muscat de St.-Jean-de-Minervois 2002 (89 points, $17/500ml)

Beautiful expression of a dessert-style Muscat, with peach, mineral and marzipan flavors. Fresh, balanced, and crisp; this needs a good crème brûlée. Drink now. 4,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Nov. 17, 2005: DOMAINE COMBEBELLE Syrah-Grenache St.-Chinian 2001 (89 points, $15)

A brute of a red, with good concentration to meat, leather, red plum and Brandied cherry flavors. A bit backward now, muscular and sinewy, with a lingering finish of well-aged beef. 4,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Nov. 16, 2005: THE CROSSINGS Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2004 (89 points, $17)

Zingy style has lively lime and grapefruit flavors at the center, picking up a green apple note as the finish lingers. Drink now. 45,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
