May. 05, 2005: HOWARD PARK Chardonnay Western Australia 2003 (90 points, $26)

Ripe, open and generous, with creamy pineapple, grapefruit and tangy, spicy overtones on the unfettered finish. Not big, but has focus and persists beautifully. Drink now through 2009. 3,150 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

May. 04, 2005: SCHLOSS GOBELSBURG Riesling Qualitätswein Trocken Kamptal Urgestein 2003 (90 points, $25)

Ripe and generous, with pretty peach, apricot and rich spice flavors and a long finish loaded with Meyer lemon notes. Intense, with a nice layer of cream that makes it enjoyable now. Drink now through 2009. 3,300 cases made. —Kim Marcus

May. 03, 2005: BIRD IN HAND Riesling Clare Valley 2004 (90 points, $18)

Beautiful ripe pear, apple and peppery-floral aromas and flavors on a dry, lean frame, exploding with character as the flavors persist with clarity. Drink now through 2014. 2,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

May. 02, 2005: SEBASTIANI Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley Appellation Selection 2002 (91 points, $28)

A rich, concentrated, deeply complex wine, laden with mocha, currant, blackberry and spicy anise notes. The tannins and oak flavors also have a strong presence, but the focus and depth of flavor are impressive. Best from 2006 through 2011. 3,400 cases mad —James Laube

Apr. 30, 2005: RUSTENBERG Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2004 (89 points, $17)

Bold, with fig, pear and toast flavors up front, but there's a taut side, with mineral and grilled almond notes showing up on the chiseled finish. Drink now. 1,000 cases imported. —James Molesworth
