Dec. 29, 2004: KANGARILLA ROAD Shiraz-Viognier McLaren Vale 2003 (90 points, $25)

Nearly black in color, but refreshing for its lively mouthful and open-textured, sweet-spicy berry flavors, the flavors hovering gently through the long, elegant finish. Drink now through 2009. 400 cases imported. From Australia. —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 28, 2004: KANGARILLA ROAD Shiraz McLaren Vale 2002 (90 points, $21)

Goes for elegance over power, with delicious blueberry, plum, olive and black pepper flavors mingling effectively. Has fine tannins and refined texture to lift the flavors through a long finish. Drink now through 2012. 6,000 cases imported. From Australia —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 27, 2004: MASTROBERARDINO Fiano di Avellino Radici 2003 (89 points, $24)

Wonderful mineral and apple aromas with hints of lemon rind. Medium- to full-bodied, with fresh acidity and a long finish. Very nice indeed. Drink now. 6,700 cases made. From Campania, Italy. —James Suckling

Dec. 24, 2004: WILLI SCHAEFER Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Graacher Himmelreich 2003 (89 points, $23)

A mix of apricot and herbs highlight this rich, forward Riesling. Balanced and concentrated, it picks up a little astringency on the finish. Nice mouthwatering impression. Drink now through 2012. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 23, 2004: VIÑA PEÑALOLÉN Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley 2002 (89 points, $17)

Alluring notes of mint, sage and roasted vanilla and coffee beans run through the stylish black cherry and currant fruit here, with the fruit gaining in intensity through the loamy yet supple finish. Drink now through 2006. 2,000 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth
