May. 18, 2005: LISINI Brunello di Montalcino Ugolaia 1999 (95 points, $125)

Fantastic. Loads of blackberry, cherry, cedar and tanned leather on the nose. Full-bodied, with a dense, powerful palate of ripe fruit and chewy tannins. A muscular Brunello with all the stuffing for aging. Best after 2006. 500 cases made. —James Suckling

May. 17, 2005: ROBERT FOLEY Claret Napa Valley 2002 (96 points, $100)

Dark, rich and massive, with gobs of flavor built around vibrant currant, blackberry and wild berry fruit, layers of exotic spicy oak nuances and rather big, ripe tannins. Yet for all its size, it's powerful and balanced, with a long, luxurious aftertaste —James Laube

May. 16, 2005: LUCIEN LE MOINE Bonnes Mares 2002 (97 points, $170)

Wrapped up tight; not much aroma or flavor. Shows sweetness and concentration midpalate, then the gripping structure takes over. Stays fresh, with a sense of verve on the finish. Best from 2012 through 2030. 100 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

May. 14, 2005: ALTESINO Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 1999 (92 points, $100)

Lots of plum and dried fruits on the nose. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a very fruity finish. A rich wine that still needs bottle time. Best after 2006. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling

May. 13, 2005: MICHEL & STÉPHANE OGIER Côte-Rôtie 2001 (92 points, $65)

Gorgeous aromas of lavender, olive, game and worn saddle leather are followed by a ripe, suave palate of dark berry, coffee and toast. An alluring, bittersweet cocoa note chimes in on the finish. Drink now through 2013. —James Molesworth
