Aug. 17, 2000: DOMAINE COMBIER Crozes-Hermitage Clos des Grives 1998 (92 points, $23)

Showy Northern Rhône red that's pumped up with fancy oak, yet it's hard not to love it. Ultrarich, oozing with fruit, violet, rose petals, grilled meat, cassis character. Silky texture. Harmonious and full-bodied. Clean, focused fresh fruit keeps it in l —Per-Henrik Mansson

A lively mouthful, round and juicy, its citrus, pear and nectarine shaded with lovely hints of nutmeg and vanilla. Gracefully balanced on a moderate scale, all echoing beautifully on the finish. Drink now through 2004. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. —Harvey Steiman
