Mar. 11, 2005: CHÂTEAU POUGET Margaux 2002 (88 points, $25)

Modern Bordeaux with clean berry and vanilla oak character. Medium-bodied, with a solid core of ripe tannins and a medium finish. A bit hollow but improving. Best after 2008. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling

Mar. 10, 2005: CHÂTEAU PRIEURÉ-LICHINE Margaux 2002 (88 points, $25)

Plum and sweet tobacco aromas follow through to a full- to medium-bodied palate, with well-integrated tannins and a medium finish. Slightly hollow midpalate but a very good quality wine. Best after 2007. 12,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Mar. 09, 2005: NOBILO Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough Icon 2004 (90 points, $20)

Bright and generous, tangy with grapefruit and green papaya flavors that linger effectively on the bracing finish. Has plenty of style and distinctive character. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

Mar. 08, 2005: VERAMONTE Chardonnay Casablanca Valley Reserve 2003 (89 points, $16)

Plump and ripe, with rich Bosc pear, pie crust, honeysuckle and dried pineapple flavors. Long and creamy on the finish. Nicely done. Drink now. 500 cases made. —James Molesworth

Mar. 07, 2005: TRIVENTO Malbec Mendoza Golden Reserve 2002 (90 points, $20)

This is a Malbec in Cabernet clothing -- powerful, with a wall of toast, dark cocoa and coffee protecting the core of dark currant and blackberry fruit. Dense and very broad-shouldered, with a structured finish that needs time to open. Drink now through 2 —James Molesworth
