One of California's top Cabernet producers, Dalla Valle bucked the trend of weak '98's with yet another outstanding version of its top wine. Dark, ripe, rich and intense, with a complex, persistent beam of black cherry, blackberry, currant, anise and sage —James Laube

Oct. 17, 2001: KRUG Brut Champagne Grande Cuvée NV (93 points, $150)

One of the top Champagne houses', Krug's non-vintage wine is better than many houses vintage cuvées. This is distinctive and dramatic. New oak lends accents of vanilla and clove to the torrefaction flavors of coffee, nuts and citrus. It's all disp —Bruce Sanderson

Oct. 11, 2001: ALDO CONTERNO Barolo Colonello 1997 (94 points, $112)

From one of the region's great traditional style producers comes this outstanding Barolo. The '97 Colonello is a racy young wine, with lots of class. Very refined aromas of flowers, raspberries and plums, with hints of spice. Starts off slow on the palate —James Suckling
