Aug. 28, 2002: BRYANT FAMILY Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1999 (97 points, $150)

This wine has quickly established itself as one of the best in California, though limited production makes it nearly impossible to find. The '99 Bryant is a dark, saturated, mouthcoating wine that's fairly muscular, loaded with plush smoky currant, herb, —James Laube

Aug. 19, 2002: CHÂTEAU DE BEAUCASTEL Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin Grande Cuvée 1999 (94 points, $245)
