Aug. 27, 2004: ZIND-HUMBRECHT Pinot Gris Alsace Clos Windsbuhl Sélection des Grains Nobles 2001 (100 points, $264/375ml)

This is the first SGN from ZH's great Clos Windsbuhl vineyard. Like liquid candy, this is a mouthful of apricot, quince, coconut, honey and smoke flavors matched to a thick texture and vibrant structure. Despite the concentration, it seemingly melts in th —Bruce Sanderson

Aug. 23, 2004: ARAUJO Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Eisele Vineyard 2002 (94 points, $32)

Aug. 16, 2004: M. CHAPOUTIER Ermitage L'Ermite 2001 (96 points, $328)

A stunner. This steel-plated version is set up for long-term cellaring, though its blackberry and boysenberry fruit is tantalizingly accessible now. Exercise restraint however, and let the racy tannins carry it while all the coffee bean, cocoa powder, min —James Molesworth
