Jun. 28, 2004: MARTINELLI Chardonnay Sonoma Coast Charles Ranch 2002 (95 points, $32)

A yummy Chardonnay, with rich, concentrated flavors and a smooth creamy texture. Deftly balanced and sharply focused, the core pear, fig, honey, citrus and spicy pineapple flavors unfold gracefully and finish with a long, persistent aftertaste. Drink now —James Laube

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)

Vivid and racy, with rich blackberry and currant fruit, lots of tar, smoke and mineral notes and a rich, sweet, chocolaty finish. Nice flashes of terroir lurk underneath all the fruit too. Serious structure here, but surprisingly accessible now. Ve —James Molesworth

Jun. 10, 2004: BERINGER Chardonnay Napa Valley Sbragia-Limited Release 2002 (94 points, $40)

A superrich, multifaceted Chardonnay brimming with exotic ripe pear, fig and honeysuckle flavors overlaid by pretty smoky, toasty, roasted marshmallow oak, finishing with a long, saturated, unctuous aftertaste. Drink now through 2008. 5,000 cases made. Hi —James Laube

Jun. 07, 2004: SILVIO NARDI Brunello di Montalcino Vigneto Manachiara 1999 (94 points, $65)

Burly Brunello that needs bottle age. Intense aromas of plums and berries with hints of violets and minerals. Full-bodied, thick and chewy, with loads of extract and fruit. Tannic yet velvety, this should prove to be excellent. Best after 2007. 1,200 case —James Suckling
