Nov. 19, 2004: DUVAL-LEROY Brut Champagne 1996 (93 points, $42)

A beautiful bubbly. Firm, dry and intensely flavored, offering candied berry, vanilla pastry, honey and hazelnut notes wrapped in an elegant frame. It releases the flavors in a well-defined, appealing manner. Fine length and aftertaste. Drink now through —Bruce Sanderson

Nov. 18, 2004: BODEGAS EMILIO MORO Ribera del Duero Malleolus de Valderramiro 2002 (94 points, $165)

Like a Ferrari with a teenager behind the wheel, this red shows extraordinary power and class, but youth undermines its focus and control. Its ripe black fruit flavors are enriched by mocha-scented oak and coat the palate, supported by muscular yet well-i —Thomas Matthews

Nov. 17, 2004: PAGO DE LOS CAPELLANES Ribera del Duero El Picón 1999 (95 points, $165)

Nov. 16, 2004: BOLLINGER Brut Rosé Champagne Grand Année 1996 (95 points, $166)

Extremely fresh and aromatic, with a veritable spice box of clove and ginger highlighting the berry notes in this sharply-focused, powerful rosé. Grilled nuts and whole-grain bread complete the flavor profile. It goes for muscle over finesse and it works —Bruce Sanderson

Nov. 15, 2004: RUDI SCHULTZ Syrah Stellenbosch 2002 (93 points, $36)

Whoa. This is a loaded wine, with a massive core of blackberry, boysenberry and plum fruit wrapped in a lush, velvety texture. Loads of sweet toast as well, but notes of violets, tar and minerals skitter throughout for added complexity. Then gobs of fruit —James Molesworth
