Oct. 21, 1999: BODEGAS ALEJANDRO FERNANDEZ Ribera del Duero Pesquera Reserva (90 points, $48)

Brute force. Made from the Tempranillo grape, this powerful red shows a deep color, ripe aromas of plum and prune and plenty of chocolate and toasty oak flavors. Full-bodied and packed with ripe tannins, this muscular wine should develop well. Best after

Oct. 19, 1999: SNOWDEN Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley (93 points, $45)

Firm and tight, with gritty tannins leading the way to a core of currant and black cherry flavors. Momentum builds slowly, revealing extra layers of flavor and depth, finishing with herb and tea notes. Needs time. Best from 2002 through 2010. 5,904 cases

Oct. 13, 1999: SPOTTSWOODE Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley (93 points, $60)

Ripe, smooth and polished, with an elegant array of plum, black cherry, currant, herb and olive notes, with a rich aftertaste that lingers on and on. Delicious. Drink now through 2008. 4,087 cases made.

Oct. 07, 1999: GAJA Barbaresco Sori Tildin (95 points, $200)

From Piedmont's master winemaker comes this classic Barbaresco. Dark in color and beautifully compacted on the midpalate, where it displays gorgeous blackberry, black cherry, mint and spicy oak notes. Firm, ripe tannins. Needs time, as it tastes extracted

Oct. 02, 1999: STERLING Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve 1996 (94 points, $50)

Ripe, smooth and harmonious, with layers of currant, cedar, coffee, anise and blackberry, it unfolds to reveal a supple texture, then firms up nicely on the finish. Best from 2000 through 2009. 7,000 cases made.
