Jun. 20, 2005: THREE RIVERS Syrah Columbia Valley 2002 (89 points, $24)

Strives for refinement and elegance, delivering violet-scented blackberry and spice flavors on a velvety frame, lingering well. Drink now through 2009. 1,600 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Jun. 18, 2005: CH.W. BERNHARD Riesling Kabinett Rheinhessen Frei-Laubersheimer Rheingrafenberg 2003 (90 points, $19)

A mineral backdrop sets the stage for this rich, dry kabinett. Hints of passion fruit and apricot fill out the flavor spectrum and fade gracefully on the long finish. Drink now through 2012. —Bruce Sanderson

Jun. 17, 2005: JOH. JOS. PRÜM Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Wehlener 2003 (90 points, $28)

Extremely fragrant, expressive and beautifully put together, offering peach, lime, slate and a hint of quinine flavors. Firm and balanced, it should age well into the next decade. Drink now through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson

Jun. 16, 2005: MARGARIDA CABAÇO Alentejo Monte dos Cabaços 2001 (90 points, $21)

Elegant, with a slightly smoky aroma and lithe flavors of red plum, cherry, raspberry and mocha. There's a pure-tasting mineral note to this as well, which adds allure. Finely crafted, with silky tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2007. 4,165 cases —Kim Marcus

Jun. 15, 2005: VOLPE PASINI Ribolla Gialla Colli Orientali del Friuli Zuc di Volpe 2004 (90 points, $17)

Vibrant and exciting with loads of mineral, apple and floral character. Full-bodied, with lots of fruit and a long, lively finish. Try this to see what this special grape can deliver. Drink now. 1,100 cases made. —James Suckling
