$15 to $30

Nov. 29, 2005: FOREFATHERS Shiraz McLaren Vale 2003 (91 points, $23)

Dense, but it seems to get more transparent with each sip. It has pepper and licorice overtones to the dark berry and cherry flavors, lingering enticingly as the finish starts to float. Drink now through 2012. 3,343 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Nov. 28, 2005: SELAKS Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Premium Selection 2005 (90 points, $15)

Bright and vivid, with celery-tinged grapefruit, lime and green apple flavors that keep hopping through the long finish. Drink now. 8,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

Nov. 26, 2005: KUYEN Maipo Valley 2003 (90 points, $22)

Ripe, fleshy and focused, with lots of black currant, cocoa, tobacco, mineral and loam flavors. A bit tight on the finish, but juicy and concentrated. Cellar short-term. Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2006 through 2009. 1,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

Nov. 24, 2005: DE BORTOLI Sémillon New South Wales Noble One Botrytis 2003 (91 points, $26/375ml)

Silky, sweet and distinctive for its creamy, spicy fig and honey flavors, hinting at pineapple as the finish persists. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

Nov. 23, 2005: HEIDSIECK MONOPOLE Brut Champagne Blue Top NV NV (89 points, $30)

Honey, baking bread, citrus and hazelnut mingle in the creamy texture, all balanced by bright acidity. Good harmony and a moderate aftertaste of honey on whole wheat toast. Drink now through 2007. 200,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
