$15 to $30

Sep. 13, 2005: VALENTÍN BIANCHI Malbec San Rafael Famiglia 2003 (88 points, $18)

Fleshy, fruit-driven version, with creamy layers of blackberry, fig and plum. Plenty of toast and cocoa here too, lending a slightly firm feel to the finish, but still lots of fruit. Drink now through 2007. 8,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

Sep. 12, 2005: DOMAINE BOURILLON-DORLÉANS Vouvray Sec La Coulée d'Argent Vieilles Vignes 2004 (88 points, $19)

Lean, with white peach, floral and mineral notes followed by a hint of ginger on the steely finish. For fans of the lean style. Drink now through 2009. 3,500 cases made. —James Molesworth

Sep. 10, 2005: MATTHIEU COSSE Cahors Le Petit Sid 2001 (88 points, $18)

Boisterous and muscular, with a meaty aroma and intense raspberry, red cherry and currant flavor. Long, chewy finish, like biting into a crisp nectarine. Drink now through 2008. 600 cases made. —Kim Marcus

Sep. 09, 2005: LUCIEN BARROT & FILS Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2003 (88 points, $30)

A rather fresh and easygoing '03, with raspberry and black cherry fruit fronting grilled herb and mineral hints on the finish. One to drink while you wait for the other '03s to soften. Drink now through 2010. 5,830 cases made. —James Molesworth

Sep. 08, 2005: DE TRAFFORD Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2002 (90 points, $30)

Sleek, with lots of blackberry, fig, and currant fruit supported by layers of Kona coffee and tar. Stays fresh through the finish despite its concentration. Delicious. Better than previously reviewed. Drink now through 2007. 126 cases imported. —James Molesworth
