Nov. 25, 2004: KLEIN CONSTANTIA Vin de Constance Constantia 1999 (92 points, $50/500ml)

Viscous but lively in texture, this has layers of orange peel, maple, crème brûlée, green tea and quince paste flavors that stay tightly knit through the lengthy finish. An excellent dessert wine that is quietly putting together an enviable track recor —James Molesworth

Nov. 24, 2004: SEGHESIO Zinfandel Alexander Valley San Lorenzo 2002 (92 points, $34)

A luxurious Zin, bursting with ripe, zesty, fleshy black cherry, blackberry, cracked pepper and hints of sage, dusty berry and cedary oak flavors that hold a tight focus. Finishes with a long, enticing aftertaste that keeps coming back to the fruit. Drink —James Laube

Nov. 23, 2004: POL ROGER Brut Rosé Champagne 1996 (92 points, $70)

A full-bodied rosé, bracing and muscular, with its berry, spice and whole-grain notes allied to a dry, chalky profile. Seems locked up tight now, yet the wheat and coffee aftertaste reveals its promise. Best from 2006 through 2015. From France. —Bruce Sanderson

Nov. 22, 2004: MAS IGNEUS Priorat Costers 2001 (94 points, $76)

This is almost too easy to like. Lush blueberry jam and piecrust notes are rich and sweet, enrobed in a plush texture and lingering sweetly on the vanilla-scented finish. It may not satisfy the traditionalists, but the pleasure is hard to deny. Drink now —Thomas Matthews

Nov. 20, 2004: LILBERT FILS Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne NV 2002 (92 points, $40)

Delicious, if atypical. Exotic tropical fruit and coconut notes mingle with fresh chanterelle and vanilla pastry in this distinctive dry Champagne. It's beautifully balanced, long and expressive, with a mineral note grounding it on the finish. Drink now. —Bruce Sanderson
