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)

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