Feb. 12, 2005: SPREITZER Riesling Spätlese Gold Cap Rheingau Oestricher Lenchen 303 2003 (93 points, $49)

Not much aroma, then the flavors kick in on the palate, exuding apricot, orange, lemon and vanilla cream. Very concentrated, this tastes like a botrytis selection. It's impressive, if lacking a little in finesse. Best from 2006 through 2025. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 11, 2005: CASCINA CUCCO Barolo Cerrati 2000 (93 points, $43)

Extremely complex red on the nose with raspberries, berries, spices and cedar. Full-bodied, with super elegant tannins and a long, long finish. A real beauty. Best after 2006. 380 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Feb. 10, 2005: CONCHA Y TORO Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Don Melchor 2001 (95 points, $45)

Gorgeous nose of black currant preserve and freshly roasted coffee, with a powerful, yet very silky palate of cassis, plum, blackberry, loam, mineral and dark chocolate flavors that glide through a superlong finish. Don't be deceived by its seeming access —James Molesworth

Feb. 09, 2005: SCHLOSS SCHÖNBORN Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Hattenheimer Pfaffenberg Lothar Franz 2003 (92 points, $35)

Fresh and exotic aromas and flavors of apricot, mango and pineapple remain well-defined in this spry and airy '03. Not as concentrated and rich as some of its peers, but harmonious and graceful. Drink now through 2015. 200 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 08, 2005: ALBAN Syrah Edna Valley Seymour's Vineyard 2002 (95 points, $85)

A dark, dense, richly concentrated wine that packs in loads of flavor yet manages to offer enough twists and curves that keep the flavors moving. Lots of exotic spice aromas, along with a deep core of blackberry, wild berry and boysenberry flavors that ar —James Laube
