Feb. 03, 2005: AUGUST KESSELER Riesling Spätlese Rheingau 2003 (91 points, $43)

Rich and spicy, this full-bodied spätlese evokes peach, orange peel and mineral aromas and flavors on a lush texture. It has fine structure, with enough acidity to age gracefully. Long finish. Drink now through 2020. 700 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 02, 2005: EGON MÜLLER Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Scharzhofberger 2003 (91 points, $66)

Passion fruit and orange cream are the main flavor themes in this exotic Riesling. Not that concentrated, yet all its elements are well-balanced and the flavors focused. Fine length. There's an extra dimension here. Drink now through 2020. 1,000 cases mad —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 01, 2005: PUNSET Barbaresco Campo Quadro 2001 (91 points, $82)

Clean and racy with floral and raspberry aromas and flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, with firm tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now. 450 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

This wine starts with a dense, rich core of fleshy, mocha-laced currant, fresh earth, plum and blackberry fruit, firming up with rich, chewy tannins, but the flavors push through on the finish, revealing added facets of depth and concentration. Cabernet S —James Laube

Jan. 29, 2005: MARTIN RAY Cabernet Sauvignon Diamond Mountain District 2001 (91 points, $70)

A sturdy, muscular young wine, with dark chocolate, blackberry and currant flavors supported by a dense wall of oak and tannins. But given its size, it works, as the concentration and complexity keep the focus on the fruit, with a hint of vanilla bean on —James Laube
