$15 to $30

May. 21, 2005: DOMINGOS ALVES DE SOUSA Touriga Nacional Douro Quinta do Vale da Raposa 2003 (89 points, $20)

Firm, fresh and fruity, with red plum, raspberry and licorice and shadings of mineral and smoke. Medium- to full-bodied but not overpowering, with a peppery finish. A delicious expression of Touriga. Drink now through 2007. 900 cases made. —Kim Marcus

May. 20, 2005: VIÑA MEIN Ribeiro 2003 (90 points, $19)

Alluring aromas of minerals, wild herbs and the sea give way to crisp, focused flavors of citrus, mineral and fresh herbs in this intense, distinctive white. Not a blockbuster, but a delicious food wine. Treixadura, Godello and others. Drink now. 3,000 ca —Thomas Matthews

May. 19, 2005: CORTES DE CÍMA Touriga Nacional Alentejo 2002 (91 points, $20)

Decadent and powerful, with a meaty, gamy aroma backed by deep plum and dark cherry flavors. Mocha and roasted notes fill the long finish, with plenty of licorice. Reminiscent of a Châteauneuf. Drink now. 12,062 cases made. —Kim Marcus

May. 18, 2005: LANDMARK Syrah Sonoma Valley Steel Plow El Farolito Vineyard 2002 (90 points, $22)

Dark, immense and deeply concentrated, with a complex, penetrating range of white pepper, beef carpaccio, plum and wild berry, supported by a firm, dry layer of tannins that make decanting a necessity. Best from 2007 through 2013. 880 cases made. —James Laube

May. 17, 2005: FRÉDÉRIC ESMONIN Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur 2002 (91 points, $27)

Tight now, with vibrant acidity and firm tannins wrapped around a core of pure cherry. Balanced and elegant, with freshness and a long finish. Best from 2007 through 2020. 150 cases imported. —Bruce Sanderson
