Nov. 25, 2000: CAYMUS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Special Selection 1999 (95 points, $136)

Here's a classic California Cabernet, a late release from the tremendous '97 vintage. The '97 Special Selection is smooth, rich and concentrated, with layers of currant, mocha, black cherry and wild berry, fairly gushing at midpalate. The finish is long, —James Laube

Nov. 23, 2000: CHÂTEAU DE LA GARDINE Châteauneuf-du-Pape 1999 (94 points, $34)

A wonderful, masterful wine. Both firm and opulent, it displays a nice dig into the Rhône terroir as it brings out wet earth, mineral and an interesting, chewy tannin structure. A high-voltage drinking experience, with lots of fruit, spice and moc —Per-Henrik Mansson

Nov. 22, 2000: PAUL JABOULET AÎNÉ Hermitage La Chapelle (96 points, $105)

Here's a classic Syrah from a Rhône winery with a long track record for excellence. The '98 La Chapelle is a great red wine. Full-bodied, with crushed berry, smoke and grilled aromas -- all presented quite subtly. Stands out for its natural, down-to-eart —Per-Henrik Mansson

Nov. 20, 2000: CHARLES HEIDSIECK Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Blanc des Millénaires (95 points, $70)

Just released, this may be a tough find, but it's a classic Champagne that's worth the search. Still incredibly youthful, this bubbly exhibits a cornucopia of flavors -- quince preserve, freshly cut grass, fresh mushroom and baking bread--all displayed on —Bruce Sanderson

Nov. 17, 2000: PRUNOTTO Barbaresco Bric Turot (93 points, $40)

A muscular Piedmont red, very, very ripe, almost raisiny, with coffee and tobacco character. It's full-bodied, very thick and chewy, mouthpuckering. Give this big wine time. Best after 2005. 1,000 cases made. —James Suckling
