May. 31, 2004: PROVENANCE Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2001 (92 points, $35)

A deliciously rich and generous wine that's also well-structured, with layers of spicy currant, cedary oak and hints of mocha and chocolate forming the core flavors. Finishes with big, rich, mouthcoating tannins and a persistent aftertaste. Best from 2005 —James Laube

May. 26, 2004: MARQUIS D'ANGERVILLE Volnay Champans 2001 (93 points, $45)

May. 19, 2004: DOMAINE CHARVIN Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2001 (96 points, $70)
