Mar. 15, 2005: CHÂTEAU LYNCH-BAGES Pauillac 2002 (91 points, $45)

Aromas of currant bush, berries and sweet tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with medium tannins and a long finish. Lovely texture to this wine. Best after 2008. 35,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Mar. 14, 2005: CHÂTEAU HAUT-BRION Pessac-Léognan 2002 (93 points, $140)

Complex aromas of blackberries, tobacco and cedar follow through to a full-bodied palate, with ripe, velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Very beautiful. Best after 2009. —James Suckling

Mar. 12, 2005: MICHEL COLIN-DELÉGER Chassagne-Montrachet Les Vergers 2002 (92 points, $60)

A rich white, loaded with peach, lemon custard, nutmeg and clove. The acidity is on the aggressive side now, but there's concentration and flesh to offset it. Finely detailed on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 600 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 11, 2005: H. DÖNNHOFF Riesling Spätlese Nahe Norheimer Dellchen 2003 (93 points, $49)

Fresh, elegant and backed by a lively structure, this Riesling balances its fruit and acidity deftly, with a lingering finish. Peach and mineral are the main notes, with an underlying citrus tone. Drink now through 2020. —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 10, 2005: DUMOL Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Ryan 2002 (94 points, $68)

This Pinot provides a rich, elegant band of spicy wild berry, black cherry and raspberry scents accented by nutmeg, spice and hazelnut before returning to the delicious medley of berry flavors. Impeccably balanced, graceful and delicate. Drink now through —James Laube
