Jan. 27, 2003: LAGIER MEREDITH Syrah Mount Veeder 2000 (93 points, $50)

Dark, rich, intense and plush given its size and density of flavor, serving up a tight core of currant, plum, mineral, white pepper, sage and blackberry fruit. Amazing vibrancy and vitality to the fruit flavors. Tannins are substantial, too. Best from 200 —James Laube

Jan. 25, 2003: MICHEL NIELLON Chassagne-Montrachet Les Chaumées 2000 (94 points, $55)

Jan. 20, 2003: IO Syrah San Luis Obispo County Ryan Road Vineyard 2001 (92 points, $35)

Jan. 18, 2003: ALBAN Syrah Edna Valley Seymour's Vineyard 2000 (96 points, $85)

It will be hard to track this down, but Alban's Syrahs are worth the effort. Tremendous color, complexity, concentration and depth of flavor, yet for all the flavors that unravel -- espresso, blackberry, pencil lead, currant and cedary oak--there's a wond —James Laube
