Nov. 02, 2004: RAATS Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch 2003 (89 points, $21)

Subtle at first, but layers of persimmon, orange blossom, white peach and minerals develop steadily in the glass, while showing length and concentration on the finish. Drink now through 2005. 300 cases made. From South Africa. —James Molesworth

Nov. 01, 2004: DOMINIO DEL PLATA Syrah-Bonarda Mendoza Crios de Susana Balbo 2003 (89 points, $15)

Lovely fruit here--plum and cassis--with sweet vanilla, violet and spice notes that add dimension. Round and creamy throughout, with a long, fruit-filled finish. Drink now through 2005. 4,500 cases made. From Argentina. —James Molesworth

Oct. 29, 2004: CHARLES DE CAZANOVE Brut Champagne Cazanova NV NV (88 points, $28)

A medium-bodied, assertive fizz, this offers pencil shaving, orange and berry notes in a firmly structured profile. Balanced toward the acidity, with good length. Drink now through 2008. 1,200 cases made. From France. —Bruce Sanderson

Oct. 28, 2004: FATTORIA DI FELSINA Chianti Classico Riserva 2001 (88 points, $26)

Plenty of blackberry and cherry character with hints of mineral. Medium- to full-bodied, with fresh fruit and a clean finish. Slightly closed. Best after 2004. 3,300 cases made. From Italy. —James Suckling

Oct. 27, 2004: BODEGA Y VIÑEDOS Solabal Rioja Crianza 2001 (89 points, $16)

This alluring red is rich, thick and ripe, with cassis and blackberry flavors unusual for Rioja, braced by ripe tannins and toasty oak. Though lush, it remains lively, a good match with food. Drink now through 2011. 2,500 cases made. From Spain. —Thomas Matthews
