Dec. 09, 2000: KENWOOD Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County Artist Series 1996 (93 points, $70)

Here's a late-release California Cabernet from the '96 vintage. Spicy, floral and perfumed, showing off earthy, cedary black cherry and blackberry flavors and pretty, toast- and vanilla-scented notes. Unusually supple and polished version of this wine. Dr —James Laube

Dec. 07, 2000: LEEUWIN Chardonnay Margaret River 1997 (97 points, $62)

A regal Australian Chardonnay, rich in texture and dripping with gorgeous pear, pineapple, honey and spice flavors, gaining zingy citrus notes and touches of earth and mushroom on the long, long finish. Doesn't strike one harsh note while building its fla —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 02, 2000: CHÂTEAU MONT-REDON Châteauneuf-du-Pape (90 points, $35)

Supple and harmonious, this medium-bodied red from the Rhône delivers good ripe fruit, showing Châteauneuf complexity. It's muscular and firm, and while the tannins are rustic, the wine is so flavorful. Drink now through 2004. Should be easy to find som —Per-Henrik Mansson
