Jun. 07, 2004: SILVIO NARDI Brunello di Montalcino Vigneto Manachiara 1999 (94 points, $65)

Burly Brunello that needs bottle age. Intense aromas of plums and berries with hints of violets and minerals. Full-bodied, thick and chewy, with loads of extract and fruit. Tannic yet velvety, this should prove to be excellent. Best after 2007. 1,200 case —James Suckling

Jun. 05, 2004: PAUL HOBBS Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2002 (95 points, $40)

You won't find many Chardonnays in this class. Ultrarich and multidimensional, with a fabulous array of creamy flavors built around a core of fig, apricot, crème brûlée and roasted marshmallows. Full-bodied, yet elegant and concentrated, it weaves the —James Laube

Jun. 01, 2004: CHATEAU DERESZLA Tokay Aszú 6 Puttonyos 2000 (96 points, $62/500ml)

Terrific Tokay. Floral, quince and apple aromas take on honey, peach and mineral accents in the mouth, all displayed on an ethereal, lighter-than-air frame. Bracing acidity is deftly integrated into the whole, and it ends with a mineral aftertaste. Drink —Bruce Sanderson

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)

Ultraconcentrated fruit in this fantastic '01. Impressive full texture, rich and ripe, but also racy and elegant, a bit oaky on the nose but absolutely packed with black fruit and sweet tannins on the palate. Lovely, balanced finish. Should improve with a —Per-Henrik Mansson
