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

Nov. 19, 2004: DUVAL-LEROY Brut Champagne 1996 (93 points, $42)

A beautiful bubbly. Firm, dry and intensely flavored, offering candied berry, vanilla pastry, honey and hazelnut notes wrapped in an elegant frame. It releases the flavors in a well-defined, appealing manner. Fine length and aftertaste. Drink now through —Bruce Sanderson
