May. 16, 2000: PHILIP TOGNI Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 1997 (91 points, $65)

Here's an oustanding Cab from California's excellent '97 vintage. Definitelyan earthy, beefy and leathery red, but that's just part of the story as itsmineral, currant, berry and cedar notes grow in complexity and turn elegant,yet retain a hearty, rustic —James Laube

May. 13, 2000: TRIMBACH Riesling Alsace Clos Ste.-Hune 1997 (94 points, $95)

Piercing, haunting aromas like shadows--first smoke, then apple and mineral--introduce this severe, no-compromise white. Sleek and focused, it shares only a hint of the quince, dried apricot, forest floor and mineral embedded in its steel framework. Subtl —Bruce Sanderson

May. 11, 2000: JEAN-MARC BOILLOT Bâtard-Montrachet 1998 (97 points, $195)

Apr. 26, 2000: FRANÇOIS RAVENEAU Chablis Valmur 1997 (96 points, $95)

This could be the wine of the '97 vintage in Chablis. A seamless work of art, simply mind-boggling in its sheer balance. Medium- to full-bodied, it drapes a curtain of silk on the palate. Lovely fruit, earth and mineral, too, but it's the texture that is —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 24, 2000: LANDMARK Chardonnay Sonoma-Santa Barbara-Monterey Counties Damaris Reserve 2000 (92 points, $32)

Very ripe and rich, this multicounty-sourced California Chardonnay reserve wakes up the taste buds with its layers of fig, tangerine, cedary oak and spice, culminating in a long, complex aftertaste. Drink now through 2004. 2,500 cases made. —James Laube
