Nov. 12, 2004: ETUDE Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2001 (93 points, $90)

A bold, rich, concentrated wine with lots of flavor dimensions and excellent structure. Dense and complex, with currant, anise, cedar and fresh earth flavors, it picks up chocolate and mocha on the finish, and should only get better over the next couple o —James Laube

Nov. 11, 2004: POL ROGER Brut Champagne Cuvée Sir Winston Churchill 1995 (94 points, $190)

Very tightly wound and racy, this packs citrus, hazelnut and vanilla pastry flavors into its medium-bodied frame. Well-integrated and dense, this has a long life ahead. Excellent lingering finish. Best from 2005 through 2015. From France. —Bruce Sanderson

Nov. 10, 2004: KISTLER Chardonnay Carneros Hudson Vineyard 2001 (91 points, $82)

Deep, rich and concentrated, with a complex range of ripe pear, citrus, fresh earth, herb and sage flavors that are well-focused and persistent, leading to a long, supple, harmonious aftertaste. Drink now through 2008. 945 cases made. From California. —James Laube

Nov. 09, 2004: PALOMA Merlot Spring Mountain District 2002 (93 points, $51)

Ripe, rich, juicy and polished, with layers of currant, black cherry and plum that are deeply concentrated, elegant and lively. A light overlay of toasty, mocha-scented oak adds another flavor dimension, and the flavors linger on a long, zesty aftertaste. —James Laube

Nov. 08, 2004: THE FOUNDRY Syrah Western Cape 2002 (90 points, $40)

Good blast of blackberry and black currant fruit here, with streamlined vanilla bean, cocoa and mineral notes as well. Nice taut finish shows a hint of garrigue. Well done. Drink now through 2006. 550 cases made. From South Africa. —James Molesworth
