Aug. 28, 2000: ROBERT CRAIG Cabernet Sauvignon Mount Veeder 1997 (94 points, $44)

Here's an outstanding California Cabernet from the great '97 vintage. Enormously rich and concentrated, brimming with flavors of black cherry, boysenberry and chocolate, with spicy, cedary notes. Turns rich, firm and creamy all at the same time. Drink now —James Laube

Aug. 25, 2000: ZIND-HUMBRECHT Riesling Alsace Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St.-Urbain 1998 (93 points, $60)

Aug. 19, 2000: SAN FELICE Toscana Vigorello 1997 (92 points, $32)

Here—s an oustanding Tuscan red from the great 1997 vintage. This is big and plummy, full-bodied and tannic, with loads of vanilla and coconut, lots of pepper and berry character, too. Long, slightly hard finish. Needs time to mellow; best after 2003. 5 —James Suckling

Aug. 15, 2000: M. CHAPOUTIER Côte-Rôtie La Mordorée 1997 (93 points, $207)

A class act. Succulent yet ripe, showing wonderfully defined aromas and flavors, kicking with lively acidity but also delivering plenty of ripe fruit, smoke, grilled meat and leather notes. Supple, subtle, sweet tannin structure. This Rhône red (100 perc —Per-Henrik Mansson

Aug. 12, 2000: JEAN-PAUL & JEAN-LUC JAMET Côte-Rôtie (94 points, $50)

An explosive, grand Syrah from the Northern Rhône. Complex and deep, layered with twists and turns that spin your taste buds around merrily. Imagine leather, wet earth, grilled meat, a garden in bloom and blackberry notes -- all of this comes together in —Per-Henrik Mansson
