Jun. 13, 2002: ARROWOOD Chardonnay Sonoma County Cuvée Michel Berthoud Réserve Spéciale 1999 (92 points, $42)

Smooth, rich and creamy, with a charred, toasty oak influence that shapes and defines the ripe pear, fig and apricot flavors, giving it a toasted marshmallow-like aftertaste. Drink now through 2006. 1,347 cases made. Highly Recommended.

For a comp —James Laube

Jun. 12, 2002: JOSEPH PHELPS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1999 (92 points, $42)

The '99 Napa Cab from Phelps is a rich, deftly balanced style, loaded with complex earthy currant, black cherry, anise, coffee and mocha flavors that are sharply focused. Long and concentrated on the finish, with a leathery streak working its way in. Best —James Laube

This domaine in Nuits-St.-Georges is among the best in Burgundy. Their '99 Les-St.-Georges is seductive, with sweet fruit, supple tannins and smoke, tar, iron, and cocoa powder aromas on the finish. Real terroir-structured Pinot that is packed to t —Per-Henrik Mansson
