Dec. 10, 2005: ERATH Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Estate Selection 2002 (91 points, $30)

Lithe, polished and distinctive for the roasted plum nuance to the blueberry and currant flavors, picking up delicate hints of pepper and spice as the finish sails on and on. Tannins are well-submerged. Best from 2006 through 2014. 1,040 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 09, 2005: WILLAKENZIE Pinot Gris Willamette Valley 2004 (89 points, $18)

Dec. 08, 2005: VIÑA SANTA RITA Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley Floresta 2002 (89 points, $30)

Solid blackberry and cassis fruit, along with plenty of briar, toast and cocoa notes. Firm, loamy finish, but plenty of fruit here too. Drink now through 2007. 1,200 cases made. —James Molesworth

Dec. 07, 2005: III ASSOCIATES Shiraz McLaren Vale Squid Ink 2003 (89 points, $29)

Firm in texture, juicy in flavor, with real density to the blackberry, cherry and black olive aromas and flavors, lingering on the chewy finish. Best after 2008. 1,500 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 06, 2005: ARGYLE Pinot Noir Willamette Valley 2004 (89 points, $20)

Light, bright and refreshing, with nice, pure dark berry and a hint of smoke mingling on the lively finish. Drink now through 2008. 19,700 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
