Jun. 21, 2004: FAILLA Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Keefer Ranch 2002 (93 points, $38)

Remarkably complex, rich and delicate, with a vibrant core of zesty black cherry, blackberry, anise, fresh earth and an exotic wild berry scent that is reminiscent of syrup. Long and lingering on the finish, this is a delicious Pinot to enjoy over the nex —James Laube

Jun. 17, 2004: CHÂTEAU DE BEAUCASTEL Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin Grande Cuvée 2001 (93 points, $420)

Jun. 05, 2004: PAUL HOBBS Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2002 (95 points, $40)

You won't find many Chardonnays in this class. Ultrarich and multidimensional, with a fabulous array of creamy flavors built around a core of fig, apricot, crème brûlée and roasted marshmallows. Full-bodied, yet elegant and concentrated, it weaves the —James Laube
