Jul. 21, 2004: CABUTTO Barolo Vigna La Volta 2000 (93 points, $48)

Loads of blackberry aromas with undertones of tar and dried flowers buttressed with hints of new wood. Full-bodied, supersoft with soft tannins and loads of fresh fruit that turns to flowers on the finish. Best after 2008. 2,000 cases made. Highly Recomme —James Suckling

Jul. 20, 2004: E. GUIGAL Côte-Rôtie La Mouline 2000 (96 points, $300)
