Jan. 25, 2005: STOLPMAN Syrah Santa Ynez Valley 2003 (89 points, $24)

Smooth, rich and concentrated, with layers of currant, pomegranate, huckleberry and boysenberry fruit that are pure and tasty, with a lovely mocha coating and firm, rich, integrated tannins. Drink now. 1,789 cases made. From California. —James Laube

Jan. 24, 2005: ODFJELL Cabernet Sauvignon Colchagua Valley Orzada 2003 (89 points, $20)

Lots of mocha and vanilla here, but plenty of blackberry and cassis fruit to back it up. Long and ripe on the finish, where a cocoa-powder note lingers. Rich, modern-styled Cabernet. Drink now through 2006. 1,255 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Jan. 22, 2005: KUYEN Maipo Valley 2002 (89 points, $22)

Shows the game, plum and sanguine notes of Syrah, along with ripe black currant, cocoa and coffee flavors. Thick, burly finish needs a little time to harmonize fully, but very solid. The second wine of Antiyal, from Alvaro Espinoza. Drink now through 2007 —James Molesworth

Jan. 21, 2005: PAUL JABOULET AÎNÉ Crozes-Hermitage White Mule Blanche 2002 (89 points, $26)

Lush and lengthy, with lemon zest, honeysuckle, almond and pear flavors that move languidly through the cream-textured palette. A nice mineral hint lends definition to the finish. Drink now through 2006. 3,775 cases made. From the Rhône, France. —James Molesworth

Jan. 20, 2005: DR. F. WEINS-PRÜM Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Graacher Himmelreich 2003 (90 points, $25)

Lovely. Vibrant, elegant and full of peach and lime notes, this remains balanced and flavorful from start to finish. It borders on mango and guava before ending with a juicy sensation. Drink now through 2015. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
