Dec. 10, 2003: DOMAINE DE LA CHARBONNIÈRE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Mourre des Perdrix 2001 (93 points, $40)

The Rhône Valley has been on a roll in recent years, and 2001 is another fine year for Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Silky, full-bodied, with plenty of ripe fruit and well-integrated tannins. Fabulously balanced, long finish, with some mineral and wet earth. Ano —Per-Henrik Mansson

Dec. 02, 2003: PETER MICHAEL Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands Le Moulin Rouge 2001 (94 points, $65)

Dark-colored and uncommonly rich, almost Syrah-like in its density. Enormously complex and concentrated, with a sharply focused core of wild berry and blackberry, hints of espresso and hazelnut; smoky oak adds a wonderful dimension. Drink now through 2009 —James Laube

Nov. 27, 2003: STARK-CONDÉ Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch Condé 2001 (92 points, $35)

Nov. 26, 2003: MASSOLINO Barolo Vigna Rionda Riserva 1997 (96 points, $70)

Incredible aromas of crushed plums, fresh flowers and hints of cappuccino. Full-bodied, with big velvety tannins, but they're ripe in rich and wonderful fruit. Glorious finish. Fantastic. Love this wine. A triumph for this producer. Best after 2007. 900 c —James Suckling

Nov. 25, 2003: BRUNO GIACOSA Barolo Le Rocche del Falletto 1999 (96 points, $170)

Hedonistic and very, very rich. Blockbuster. Racy. Masses of fruit on the nose, with plum, berry, and toasted oak. Full-bodied, with chunky tannins and a long, long finish. Fruit bomb. From a tiny section of the Barolo maestro's own vineyard in Falletto. —James Suckling
