Oct. 14, 2003: CHAPPELLET Chardonnay Napa Valley 2001 (90 points, $22)

From a California winery with a long history of successful Cabernet comes this outstanding Chardonnay. Firm, rich and intense, with layers of apple, fig and honeydew shaded by smoky, toasty oak, giving it a rich, unctuous aftertaste. Drink now through 200 —James Laube

Oct. 07, 2003: NAVARRO Pinot Noir Mendocino 2001 (89 points, $15)
