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

Nov. 05, 2004: WOLF FAMILY Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2001 (92 points, $53)

Offers a wonderful sense of harmony and finesse, with ripe, fleshy currant, black cherry, blackberry and spicy, floral scents. Intense and concentrated, with depth to the flavors and ripe, integrated tannins on the long finish. Best from 2006 through 2013 —James Laube

Nov. 04, 2004: ACHÁVAL-FERRER Quimera Mendoza 2002 (91 points, $40)

Lush yet racy, this is filled with boysenberry and raspberry compote flavors, followed by a live-wire minerally tang. Hints of violets and lavender chime in on the finish, where the dark fruit also continues its charge. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merl —James Molesworth

Nov. 03, 2004: VRANKEN Brut Champagne Demoiselle Tête de Cuvée 1996 (92 points, $90)

Gorgeous. Candied citrus, toast, coffee and hazelnut aromas and flavors unfold gracefully on the velvety texture, getting support from the firm yet well-integrated acidity. It finishes dry, with a mouthwatering intensity. Drink now through 2012. 1,000 ca —Bruce Sanderson
