Dec. 24, 2004: ALBINO ROCCA Barbaresco Vigneto Brich Ronchi 2001 (92 points, $68)

Fabulous aromas of crushed blackberries and strawberries follow through to a full-bodied palate, with soft and velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Very aromatic red. Best after 2007. 1,620 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Dec. 23, 2004: PAITIN Barbaresco Sorì Paitin Vecchie Vigne 2001 (93 points, $75)

Rich and decadent with mushroom, berry and cherry aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a long ripe fruit aftertaste. Big wine. This is always impressive. Much better than the 2000. Best after 2008. 400 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Dec. 22, 2004: MOCCAGATTA Barbaresco Basarin 2001 (92 points, $53)

Wonderfully pure and perfumed with flowers, berries and cherries. Full-bodied, with fine tannins and a fresh finish. Silky and refined. Racy. Very aromatic young wine. Best after 2008. 600 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Dec. 21, 2004: PETER LEHMANN Shiraz Barossa Eight Songs 2000 (92 points, $55)

Dark, dense and powerful, juicy with ripe cherry, blackberry and tar flavors, hinting at exotic spice as the flavors persist on the muscular finish. Drink now through 2015. 3,000 cases made. From Australia. —Bruce Sanderson

Dec. 20, 2004: CHEVAL DES ANDES Vistalba 2002 (92 points, $70)

This is a finely sculpted wine, with a ripe, focused core of red currant, plum and blackberry fruit balanced by vanilla bean, coffee and smoke notes. Long and plush with fine-grained tannins carrying the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot —James Molesworth
