Nov. 11, 2004: POL ROGER Brut Champagne Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 1995 (94 points, $190)

Very tightly wound and racy, this packs citrus, hazelnut and vanilla pastry flavors into its medium-bodied frame. Well-integrated and dense, this has a long life ahead. Excellent lingering finish. Best from 2005 through 2015. From France. —Bruce Sanderson

Nov. 10, 2004: KISTLER Chardonnay Carneros Hudson Vineyard 2001 (91 points, $82)

Deep, rich and concentrated, with a complex range of ripe pear, citrus, fresh earth, herb and sage flavors that are well-focused and persistent, leading to a long, supple, harmonious aftertaste. Drink now through 2008. 945 cases made. From California. —James Laube

Nov. 09, 2004: PALOMA Merlot Spring Mountain District 2002 (93 points, $51)

Ripe, rich, juicy and polished, with layers of currant, black cherry and plum that are deeply concentrated, elegant and lively. A light overlay of toasty, mocha-scented oak adds another flavor dimension, and the flavors linger on a long, zesty aftertaste. —James Laube

Nov. 08, 2004: THE FOUNDRY Syrah Western Cape 2002 (90 points, $40)

Good blast of blackberry and black currant fruit here, with streamlined vanilla bean, cocoa and mineral notes as well. Nice taut finish shows a hint of garrigue. Well done. Drink now through 2006. 550 cases made. From South Africa. —James Molesworth

Nov. 06, 2004: SADIE FAMILY Columella Swartland 2002 (91 points, $60)

Lots of blackberry, raspberry and black fig confiture notes, supported by muscular cocoa, pepper, toast and licorice notes. Lots going on here, though a slightly hard-edged note in the end holds it back for now. Let it assimilate in the cellar. Syrah and —James Molesworth
