$15 to $30

Apr. 23, 2005: CHÂTEAU LAGRÉZETTE Cahors 2002 (90 points, $25)

Quite polished and filled with layers of concentrated flavors of blackberry, dark plum, boysenberry, black olive and cassis. Well-integrated tannins, though they need time to settle. Finishes with notes of chocolate-covered strawberry. Best from 2006 thro —Kim Marcus

Apr. 22, 2005: ORIN SWIFT The Prisoner Napa Valley 2003 (92 points, $25)

Dark, immense and packed with zesty wild berry, spice, floral and currant flavors that are sharply focused and well-defined. The long, persistent aftertaste offers a hint of chocolate and vanilla. Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Charbono and Petite —James Laube

Apr. 21, 2005: SEVEN HILLS Merlot Columbia Valley Klipsun Vineyard 2002 (89 points, $30)

Firm and chewy, with candied blackberry and currant flavors, picking up earthy notes on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 250 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 20, 2005: ÖKONOMIERAT REBHOLZ Riesling Qualitätswein Trocken Pfalz Kastanienbusch 2003 (89 points, $30)

Ripe and creamy, with candied apple, but this lacks oomph and flavor intensity midpalate. Drink now. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 19, 2005: OWEN SULLIVAN R3 Columbia Valley 2002 (92 points, $30)

Ripe, rich, almost flamboyant with its currant, blueberry, plum and exotic spice aromas and flavors sashaying through the thin veils of fine tannins. A spectacular mouthful that should only gain with cellaring. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlo —Harvey Steiman
