MARK WEST Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2003
89 points, $20
Aromas of wild berry and raspberry jam are ripe, rich and elegant on the palate. Deftly balanced, with a hint of watermelon and strawberry peeking through on the finish, returning to the hint of jammy fruit. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. —James Laube

DR. PAULY-BERGWEILER Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Bernkasteler Badstube 2004
89 points, $23
Racy and spicy in character, with apple, beeswax and cardamom notes driven by the bracing acidity. This needs time to settle down, but has good length. Best from 2007 through 2018. 1,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 24, 2005
CASCINA BALLARIN Barbera d'Alba Giuli 2003
90 points, $21
Dark colored with blackberry and light toasted oak. Almost raisiny on the nose. Full-bodied, with loads of fruit and a long, long flavorful aftertaste. It's all there. Best wine I have had from here, even better than the Barolos. Drink now. 450 cases made —James Suckling

BLANDY'S Sercial Madeira 5 Year Old NV NV
89 points, $21
Dried apricot, golden raisin and smoky flavors fill this fresh and lively Madiera. Balanced, and edged with lush spicy notes, which linger on the creamy finish. Try on ice as an aperitif. Drink now through 2010. —Kim Marcus

DESSILANI Fara Caramino 2001
90 points, $30
Aromas of meat, spice and leather follow through to a full-bodied palate, with lots of spice, pepper and tobacco character, verging on funky. Big and rich. I like it. Best after 2006. 1,600 cases made. —James Suckling
