Dec. 18, 2000: PIO CESARE Barolo Ornato (96 points, $105)

Generous and meaty. Gloriously rich character, with delightful aromas of plums, fresh flowers and spices. The wine is full-bodied with meaty, earthy, plummy flavors and big, thick and velvety tannins. Best from 2004 through 2012. 1,000 cases made. —James Suckling

Dec. 14, 2000: PENFOLDS Shiraz South Australia Grange (97 points, $185)

Max Schubert's Grange helped put Australian wine on the map, so to speak. The just released '95 vintage is another in a string of classic releases for this wine. It's massive, majestic in its proportions, combining power and grace in equal measure. Flavor —Harvey Steiman

Dec. 11, 2000: GAJA Barbaresco (95 points, $160)

Super Barbaresco, from one of the top producers in the region. Intense aromas of ripe plums, violets and berries lead to a full-bodied palate with chewy tannins. Long finish tastes of superripe fruit. Lovely and powerful wine. Best after 2005. 5,000 cases —James Suckling

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
