Nov. 01, 2004: DOMINIO DEL PLATA Syrah-Bonarda Mendoza Crios de Susana Balbo 2003 (89 points, $15)

Lovely fruit here--plum and cassis--with sweet vanilla, violet and spice notes that add dimension. Round and creamy throughout, with a long, fruit-filled finish. Drink now through 2005. 4,500 cases made. From Argentina. —James Molesworth

Oct. 29, 2004: CHARLES DE CAZANOVE Brut Champagne Cazanova NV NV (88 points, $28)

A medium-bodied, assertive fizz, this offers pencil shaving, orange and berry notes in a firmly structured profile. Balanced toward the acidity, with good length. Drink now through 2008. 1,200 cases made. From France. —Bruce Sanderson

Oct. 28, 2004: FATTORIA DI FELSINA Chianti Classico Riserva 2001 (88 points, $26)

Plenty of blackberry and cherry character with hints of mineral. Medium- to full-bodied, with fresh fruit and a clean finish. Slightly closed. Best after 2004. 3,300 cases made. From Italy. —James Suckling

Oct. 27, 2004: BODEGA Y VIÑEDOS Solabal Rioja Crianza 2001 (89 points, $16)

This alluring red is rich, thick and ripe, with cassis and blackberry flavors unusual for Rioja, braced by ripe tannins and toasty oak. Though lush, it remains lively, a good match with food. Drink now through 2011. 2,500 cases made. From Spain. —Thomas Matthews

Oct. 26, 2004: CASTELLO DI QUERCETO Chianti Classico Riserva 2000 (91 points, $18)
