Apr. 05, 2004: VIÑA ALMAVIVA Puente Alto 2001 (95 points, $85)

This brick house of a wine shows plenty of Pauillac-like hints of iron, dried currant and cigar smoke, but also has layers of Chilean loam, blackberry, plum, spice and minerals. Loads here, and filled out on all sides; a powerful performance in a powerful —James Molesworth

Apr. 02, 2004: ROBERT FOLEY Claret Napa Valley 2001 (96 points, $100)

An intense and powerful Cabernet blend, with vibrant, concentrated currant and blackberry flavors that show off exotic spicy fragrances, finishing with a potent aftertaste that gushes with fruit and tannins. A genuinely exciting wine with fascinating flav —James Laube

Mar. 31, 2004: PASCAL COTAT Sancerre Les Monts Damnés 2002 (92 points, $36)

This crackles, with lemon verbena, white asparagus, chamomile flower and honeysuckle notes on a rich, yet nervy frame. Strong chalky finish begs for a little Crotin de Chavignol. Delicious. Drink now through 2006. 830 cases made. From France. —James Molesworth

Mar. 30, 2004: GUNDERLOCH Riesling Beerenauslese Rheinhessen Nackenheim Rothenberg 2002 (95 points, $195/375ml)

Intense. A deep golden color marks this BA, whose spice and earth aromas and candied orange and caramel notes get support from the vivid acidity. Very much like an eiswein in character. Fine lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. 30 cases imported. Fro —Bruce Sanderson

Mar. 29, 2004: CHÂTEAU LATOUR Pauillac 2001 (95 points, $150)

Extremely attractive aromas of blackberries and currants with just a hint of mineral and oak. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Like I said from barrel, it's powerful and fast. Serious stuff. Best after 2010. Collectible. From Franc —James Suckling
