Dec. 09, 2004: SCALA DEI Priorat Iugiter 2001 (92 points, $37)

This powerful red is packed with blackberry and raisin flavors, with chocolate, earth, licorice and spice notes that struggle to emerge over punishing tannins. The finish shows more finesse, with lingering spice and fruit. Will time tame it? Best after 20 —Thomas Matthews

Dec. 08, 2004: LA VALENTINA Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Bellovedere 2000 (92 points, $45)

Very beautiful on the nose, with perfumed and subtle aromas of flowers and berries, hints of tar and sandalwood. Full-bodied, with very fine-grained tannins and a silky finish. Classy red. Still needs time in the bottle. Serious red. Best after 2004. 600 —James Suckling

Dec. 07, 2004: LOUIS JADOT Gevrey-Chambertin Clos St.-Jacques 2002 (93 points, $85)

Pure black cherry and violet aromas and flavors mark this opulent, forward red. It shows class, but also terroir, in a seductive, modern presentation. Mouthcoating, ripe tannins and lingering sweet fruit on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 06, 2004: MÉO-CAMUZET Clos de Vougeot 2002 (94 points, $160)

Concentrated black cherry and black currant aromas and flavors mark this rich, full-bodied Pinot, whose purity of fruit is matched by a phalanx of ripe, integrated tannins. The flavor intensity is almost kirschlike. Fine length, but needs time to resolve —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 04, 2004: PHILIPPE DELESVAUX Coteaux du Layon Sélection de Grains Nobles 2002 (99 points, $50/500ml)

The subtle aromas of fig paste and maple syrup belie the intensity of the green tea, blood-orange marmalade, date, dried apricot and honey flavors that are seamlessly intertwined. And when you're ready to take another sip, you realize the incredibly lithe —James Molesworth
