May. 01, 2004: FANTI Brunello di Montalcino 1999 (98 points, $80)

Now one of the greatest producers of Brunello thanks to the help of consulting enologist Stefano Chioccioli. Dark colored with incredible aromas of blackberries, treacle tart and smoke. Almost meaty. Full-bodied, with fantastic silky and rich tannins. It —James Suckling

Apr. 23, 2004: DAVID ARTHUR Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2001 (95 points, $75)

Ultraripe, rich and extracted, gushing with exotic currant, blackberry, wild berry and black cherry fruit accented by pretty mocha-vanilla shadings and finishing with a full, focused, deeply concentrated aftertaste and a sense of elegance. Best from 2005 —James Laube

Apr. 21, 2004: DAVID ARTHUR Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Elevation 1147 2001 (96 points, $115)

An ultraripe, almost syrupy Cabernet, with thick, concentrated blackberry, wild berry and currant, with a touch of kirsch, this is a remarkably rich and expressive young wine capturing deliciously ripe fruit and supported by firm, fine-grained tannins tha —James Laube

Apr. 20, 2004: PATZ & HALL Chardonnay Napa Valley 2002 (92 points, $33)

Very Burgundian in its style and range of complex flavors, exhibiting a tight, rich core of pear and apple shaded by toasty, buttery oak, which gives the wine added flavor and structure. Drink now through 2007. 3,637 cases made. Highly Recommended. From C —James Laube

Apr. 15, 2004: CONCHA Y TORO Cabernet Sauvignon Puente Alto Don Melchor 2000 (94 points, $41)

Terrific personality here, with prune, cocoa, loam, mineral, dark currant, blackberry, tar and sanguine flavors that don't quit. Well-structured, with fine balance and harmony already and a very long finish. Love it. Best from 2005 through 2010. 15,200 ca —James Molesworth
