Jan. 27, 2005: JOSEPH DROUHIN Beaune Clos des Mouches 2002 (91 points, $56)

This lean, tightly wound, young red Burgundy is a compact expression of kirsch, mineral and spice with vibrant acidity and tannins as a backdrop. Very pure and elegant, it requires patience. Best from 2007 through 2018. 600 cases made. From Burgundy, Fran —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 26, 2005: HILL CLIMBER Syrah Napa Valley Pilgrimage 2002 (91 points, $40)

This wine offers a bold beam of tightly focused blackberry, black currant, cola and plum fruit. Pretty violet and mineral nuances float along a supple texture, with harmonious toasty oak and stylish tannins on the finish. Drink now through 2007. 240 cases —James Laube

Jan. 25, 2005: LADERA Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Lone Canyon Vineyard 2001 (91 points, $65)

Scents of new leather, ripe currant and plum lead to a similar array of flavors. Well-structured, with a firm core of edgy tannins and lively acidity. Most impressive, though, is the long, rich, intense flavor, with a nice minerally edge. Best from 2006 t —James Laube

Jan. 24, 2005: FATTORIA DI FICHINO Toscana Sezzana 2001 (91 points, $52)

Gorgeous aromas of plums, blackberries and fresh raspberries follow through to a full body, with silky tannins and a long, delicious finish. Rich with lots of finesse. This is from the great Barbaresco producer Giorgio Rivetti, and it's super. Drink now. —James Suckling

Jan. 22, 2005: E. GUIGAL Condrieu La Doriane 2003 (91 points, $85)

Performs Condrieu's unique trick—delivers lots of showy floral, peach, melon, mango and fig notes along with a long, creamy, smoky finish that manages to avoid being blowsy. Beautiful. Drink now. 375 cases made. From the Rhône, France. —James Molesworth
