Dec. 20, 2004: CHEVAL DES ANDES Vistalba 2002 (92 points, $70)

This is a finely sculpted wine, with a ripe, focused core of red currant, plum and blackberry fruit balanced by vanilla bean, coffee and smoke notes. Long and plush with fine-grained tannins carrying the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot —James Molesworth

Dec. 18, 2004: MASSOLINO Barolo Vigna Rionda Riserva 1998 (93 points, $85)

Wonderfully silky and refined with Indian spices, cinnamon, cedar and berries. Full-bodied, with ultrafine tannins and a long, long finish. A beauty. Extremely perfumed. Best after 2006. 1,000 cases made. From Piedmont. —James Suckling

Dec. 17, 2004: PRIDE Syrah Sonoma County 2002 (93 points, $52)

Dark side of the moon in color, ultrarich and concentrated, with layers of currant, blackberry, wild berry, boysenberry and pretty, toasty vanilla bean—laced oak, ending with a strong, rich aftertaste and ripe, integrated tannins. Drink now through 2012 —James Laube

Dec. 16, 2004: ENZO BOGLIETTI Barolo Brunate 2000 (93 points, $65)

Rich and round with loads of ripe fruit and chocolate, vanilla character. Full-bodied, with ripe and round tannins and a long unctuous finish. Serious 2000. Best after 2008. 260 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Dec. 15, 2004: DUPONT-TISSERANDOT Gevrey-Chambertin Lavaux St.-Jacques 2002 (94 points, $70)

Beautiful ripe, pure flavors of cherry and spice, lush in texture and backed by firm tannins. It starts out beguiling, shutting down on the finish, suggesting a few more years before approaching this red. Fine balance and harmony. Best from 2007 through 2 —Bruce Sanderson
