May. 31, 2005: IRON HORSE Pinot Noir Sonoma County Green Valley 2002 (90 points, $30)

A beautifully crafted and deftly balanced wine that achieves ripeness without excess. Smooth, rich and harmonious, with layers of black cherry, spice, nutmeg and wild berry flavors supported by ripe, integrated tannins. Long, complex aftertaste. Drink now —James Laube

May. 30, 2005: CASA AGRÍCOLA DA QUINTA DO FALCÃO Ribatejo Paço dos Falcoes 2000 (89 points, $20)

Elegant, fresh and lively, with blueberry, raspberry and dark plum flavors. Leathery and minerally shadings. A cross between a modern and more traditional style. Well done for the appellation. Periquita and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now. —Kim Marcus

May. 28, 2005: MAS IGNEUS Priorat White FA104 2003 (89 points, $26)

This big-boned, dry white explodes with pear, white pepper and toast flavors that have intensity but remain graceful, with a lovely, spicy finish. Drink now through 2006. 100 cases made. —Thomas Matthews

May. 27, 2005: HERDADE DO ESPORÃO Aragonês Alentejo 2002 (89 points, $18)

Smoky, decadent aroma, with dark plum and dark cherry flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with loads of bitter chocolate notes on the finish. A bit rough, but has intensity and structure, with plenty of chocolate, mocha and licorice. Needs time to settle dow —Kim Marcus

May. 26, 2005: DOMAINE ST.-MARTIN Marsannay Les Échézeaux 2002 (89 points, $22)

Shows great purity to the black cherry and blackberry aromas and flavors. Rich and round, with a solid structure for support. Drink now through 2009. 100 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
