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

Dec. 14, 2004: DOMAINE ROULOT Meursault Perrières 2002 (93 points, $137)

Harmonious and fine. Starts out subtly, then builds in intensity, unraveling its lime, apple, hazelnut and spice notes gracefully. It's rich, elegant and beautifully balanced, ending with a seam of mineral. Classy, with a sense of terroir. Best fro —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 13, 2004: CHAMPY Mazis-Chambertin 2002 (95 points, $117)

Kirsch aromas and flavors, with loads of mineral and animal intensity, this is a tightly wound, backward red. Chewy and concentrated, it needs time to resolve its tannins and show all its charms. A little rustic, yet impressive. Best from 2007 through 202 —Bruce Sanderson
