Aug. 16, 2001: ROCHIOLI Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 1999 (91 points, $36)

Tight, well-structured, with a firm band of cherry, blackberry, raspberry and spicy notes. Gains momentum and finishes with an elegant, bright, lively aftertaste. Drink now through 2007. 2,385 cases made. —James Laube

Aug. 10, 2001: DOMAINE DE LA MORDORÉE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de la Reine des Bois (95 points, $66)

Following up their superb '98, Mordorée has another classic Cuvée de la Reine des Bois in —99. Nearly flawless blockbuster -- a gem from start to finish. Full-bodied, ultrathick, very silky, displaying a seductive texture that is backed by black fruit —Per-Henrik Mansson

Aug. 08, 2001: KISTLER Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Camp Meeting Ridge 1998 (94 points, $65)

While known for its Chardonnay, Kistler is also making superlative Pinot Noir these days. The —98 CMR is extraordinary. Dark color, gorgeous flavors, with rich and exotic aromas of black cherry, fresh roasted coffee, mocha, currant and spice. Fills out —James Laube

Aug. 04, 2001: DELAS Côte-Rôtie Seigneur de Maugiron 1998 (94 points, $52)

While Châteauneuf grabbed all the early headlines in '98, Côte-Rôtie may turn out to be the best performer in this vintage. This release from Delas is supple and seductive. Round and ripe, but also clean, fresh and vibrant, this shows balance. Full-bod —Per-Henrik Mansson

Jul. 31, 2001: PAUL COULON & FILS Châteauneuf-du-Pape Boisrenard (94 points, $50)

On the heels of the ripe, showy '98 Châteauneufs come the structured, racy '99—s. Rhone lovers have a bevy of choices these days. Tannic, well-crafted blockbuster that's a blend of modern and traditional. Gorgeous, full-bodied and dark-colored. Thick, —Per-Henrik Mansson
