Dec. 16, 2004: STUDERT-PRÜM Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Wehlener Sonnenuhr 2003 (91 points, $18)

Very tasty. Lime, slate and peach notes ride a vibrant structure and its profile is delicate for an '03. Delicious now, this has the sleekness to develop over a long time. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 15, 2004: MCDOWELL Syrah McDowell Valley Reserve 2002 (88 points, $25)

Lots of ripe, up-front floral and lavender aromas, with spice, wild berry, cedar and black cherry fruit, offering intensity and richness, with firm tannins and a touch of tar and spice. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 1,000 ca —James Laube

Dec. 14, 2004: ODFJELL Carignan Maule Valley Orzada 2002 (88 points, $18)

Tasty dark currant, tobacco, plum sauce and mineral notes run through this fleshy, solid offering. Nice tobacco and fruit-filled finish. Drink now through 2005. 1,350 cases made. From Chile. —James Molesworth

Dec. 13, 2004: TORRE DEI BEATI Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Vigneto Cocciapazza 2001 (88 points, $26)

Round and velvety, with tobacco, earthy and decadent fruit character. Full-bodied, medium finish. A bit funky but I like this. Drink now. 1,400 cases made. From Abruzzi, Italy. —James Suckling

Dec. 11, 2004: ANTINORI Chardonnay Umbria Castello della Sala 2003 (88 points, $15)
