Sep. 20, 2003: PENFOLDS Shiraz Barossa Valley RWT 2000 (95 points, $69)

Another of Penfolds' flagship reds, the RWT rates classic in the '00 vintage. Rich in character and aristocratic in structure, a noble red that wears its subtle cherry, blackberry, chocolate, pepper and sweet spice flavors on a polished frame like a bespo —Harvey Steiman

Sep. 05, 2003: DOMAINE DE LA JANASSE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes 2001 (94 points, $75)

The father-and-son team of Aimé and Christophe Sabon have this southern Rhône domaine in top form these days. The Vieilles Vignes (old vines) bottling is their top cuvée. Blockbuster Châteauneuf -- rich and thick yet loyal to local customs with its tr —Per-Henrik Mansson
