Jan. 17, 2005: RED CAR Syrah Napa Valley The Fight Richard Perry Vineyard 2002 (93 points, $55)

Smooth-textured, with a wealth of flavor, offering tiers of raspberry, wild berry, cassis, currant and sage, picking up hints of white pepper, spice and finishing with a long, intricate aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. 198 cases made. From California. —James Laube

Jan. 15, 2005: SWITCHBACK RIDGE Petite Sirah Napa Valley Peterson Family Vineyard 2002 (93 points, $50)

Dark and immense, with a lively medley of black cherry, wild berry and boysenberry flavors that are rich and vivid, offering a purity of fruit along with depth and concentration, ending with a complex and well-integrated aftertaste. Drink now through 2012 —James Laube

Jan. 14, 2005: FRANZ KÜNSTLER Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Hochheimer Kirchenstück 2003 (93 points, $38)

Jan. 12, 2005: BRUNO ROCCA Barbaresco Rabajà 2001 (93 points, $90)
