Aug. 11, 2004: CAYUSE Syrah Walla Walla Valley En Cerise Vineyard 2001 (95 points, $45)

Gorgeous stuff, ripe and open, layered with exotic spice-scented plum, cherry and saffron, peppery notes that linger enticingly on the long, extraordinarily well-formed peacock's tail of a finish. Drink now through 2011. 196 cases made. Highly Recommended —Harvey Steiman

Aug. 07, 2004: DIDIER DAGUENEAU Pouilly-Fumé Pur Sang 2002 (96 points, $60)

Aug. 02, 2004: PHILIPPE DELESVAUX Coteaux du Layon Sélection de Grains Nobles 2001 (98 points, $52/500ml)

From the Loire, this botrityzed Chenin Blanc has all the explosive orange peel, maple, fig and quince paste flavors of a great sweet wine, but it never gets heavy, while extra notes of spice, green tea, mango and kumquat seem to hit every taste bud you ha —James Molesworth
