Jan. 14, 2005: FRANZ KÜNSTLER Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Hochheimer Kirchenstück 2003 (93 points, $38)

Tasting more like a Mosel '03, this is floral, with lime and slate notes on an airy testure. Lovely wine, with zip and balance, if atypical for the Rheingau. Drink now through 2015. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 13, 2005: SIDURI Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills Clos Pepe Vineyard 2003 (93 points, $52)

Ripe, rich and lively, with a zesty medley of plum, blackberry, blueberry and hints of raspberry. Tightly focused, with delicate oak shadings peeking through, this is a wonderful expression of Pinot Noir fruit. Drink now through 2008. 88 cases made. From —James Laube

Jan. 12, 2005: BRUNO ROCCA Barbaresco Rabajà 2001 (93 points, $90)

This is always one of the best from Barbaresco, and deservedly. Aromas of very ripe raspberries and blackberries with a hint of cedar. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. This is refined and structured. Best after 2009. 1,200 cases ma —James Suckling

Jan. 11, 2005: PUNSET Barbaresco Campo Quadro 2000 (93 points, $82)

Wonderful focused berry fruit with hints of minerals and cherries. Full-bodied, with terrific concentration of fruit and silky tannins. Very long and focused. Very clean. This is the best I have had from here. Best after 2008. 450 cases made. From Piedmon —James Suckling

Jan. 10, 2005: BARTOLO MASCARELLO Barolo 1999 (95 points, $93)

Aromas of leather, berry and tobacco follow through to a full-bodied palate, with sweet and ripe fruit, silky tannins and a long finish. Beauty. The genuine deal here. Best after 2007. 1,410 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling
