$15 to $30

Jan. 15, 2005: C. VON SCHUBERT Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Maximin Grünhäuser Abstberg 2003 (90 points, $25)

A mix of herb and tropical fruit notes with a hint of mineral gets support from a moderately firm structure in this easygoing white. It remains delicate and focused, if atypical in style. Drink now through 2010. 1,000 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 14, 2005: NINO NEGRI Valtellina Superiore Inferno Mazér 2001 (90 points, $18)

Beautiful aromas of crushed plums with hints of spices. Full-bodied, yet balanced and refined with silky tannins and a long finish. This is always excellent value for the quality. Best after 2006. 4,600 cases made. From Lombrady, Italy. —James Suckling

Jan. 13, 2005: CONCHA Y TORO Carmenère Rapel Valley Casillero del Diablo 2003 (86 points, $15)

Lots of fleshy plum and black cherry fruit, with pretty notes of vanilla, tobacco and lavendar in the background. A good introduction to the grape. Drink now. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Jan. 13, 2005: TERRE DA VINO Barolo 2000 (90 points, $29)

Loads of ripe and up-front fruit on this, with just hints of cedar and dried mushrooms. Full-bodied, with a dense and ripe palate. Pleasing finish. Best ever from this big cooperative. Good value too. Best after 2005. 10,000 cases made. From Piedmont, Ita —James Suckling

Jan. 12, 2005: PROVISOR Syrah Dry Creek Valley 2002 (90 points, $30)

This wine offers a pure, rich display of ripe blackberry, boysenberry and plummy notes, that are offset by a dusty wild berry, violet and sage scent and supported by tight, firm, grainy tannins. Best from 2006 through 2012. 440 cases made. From California —James Laube
