Feb. 19, 2005: SIDURI Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Pisoni Vineyard 2003 (92 points, $52)

Dark, rich, intense and concentrated, with plush blueberry, wild berry and black cherry fruit that's well-focused, deep and persistent. Shows off plenty of rich tannic strength, but in the end it's the fruit that shines through. Drink now through 2008. 50 —James Laube

Feb. 18, 2005: SANCTUM Shiraz Western Cape 2002 (92 points, $65)

Alluring aromas of crushed raspberry, cassis and blackberry fruit, with a racy palate of fruit, spice and toast. Smoky finish, but a nice underlying layer of cassis lingers as well. This really blossoms in the glass too. Debut of Mike Dobrovic's (of Mulde —James Molesworth

Feb. 17, 2005: MARCHESI DI GRÉSY Barbaresco Gaiun Martinenga 2000 (92 points, $90)

Round and spicy with cedar, berry and fresh tobacco aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a long finish. Beauty. Best after 2008. 1,150 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Feb. 16, 2005: LANGWERTH VON SIMMERN Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Erbacher Marcobrunn 2003 (93 points, $32)

Very pure and focused, with its grapefruit, apricot and mineral flavors getting support from a lively structure. It's certainly rich, yet maintains more of a classical profile for the vintage. Excellent length. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases made. From —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 15, 2005: CAVALIER BARTOLOMEO Barolo Vigneti Solanotto Altinasso 2000 (92 points, $65)

Subtle and refined with plum, berry and strawberry aromas with just a hint of spice and cedar. Full-bodied, yet racy and refined with layers of silky tannins. Long finish. Should develop very nicely in the bottle. Best after 2008. 700 cases made. From Pie —James Suckling
