Aug. 06, 2004: PETER MICHAEL Les Pavots Knights Valley 2001 (98 points, $115)

Seductive spicy blackberry, floral and licorice flavors are simply fantastic, leading to a wine both rich in flavor yet delicately balanced and elegantly styled. This magnificent young wine gushes with ripe, fleshy Cabernet flavors, and while the flavors —James Laube

Aug. 03, 2004: JEAN-LOUIS CHAVE Hermitage 2001 (95 points, $170)

A brute right now, with a wall of bacony, coffee-tinged toast separating you from the core of blackberry and raspberry fruit. Great richness and texture here though, with notes of tar, minerals, saddle leather and cocoa rippling through the finish. Mouthw —James Molesworth

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

Jul. 31, 2004: GAJA Langhe Conteisa 2000 (97 points, $150)

Jul. 29, 2004: CA' BIANCA Barolo 2000 (92 points, $36)

Focused and dense plum and blackberry fruit on the nose. Full-bodied, jammy and rich. Soft tannins. Fruit forward. Seriously good for this estate. Best after 2008. 5,000 cases made. Highly Recommended. From Italy. —James Suckling
