Apr. 24, 2000: LANDMARK Chardonnay Sonoma-Santa Barbara-Monterey Counties Damaris Reserve 2000 (92 points, $32)

Very ripe and rich, this multicounty-sourced California Chardonnay reserve wakes up the taste buds with its layers of fig, tangerine, cedary oak and spice, culminating in a long, complex aftertaste. Drink now through 2004. 2,500 cases made. —James Laube

Apr. 22, 2000: RUST EN VREDE Stellenbosch (92 points, $32)

This red makes a statement. Fresh, bold and extravagantly oaked, exuding vanilla, coffee and toast elements, backed by a core of rich, concentrated plum and black currant. Lovely acidity keeps it all lively, and the long finish bodes well for the future. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 20, 2000: BRICK HOUSE Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Les Dijonnais (94 points, $38)

This wine is deep, dense, rich and concentrated. Powerful aromas of blackberry, raspberry, currant and plum melt into a supple, beautifully structured mouthfeel that lasts and lasts. Seductive now, but just wait. Best from 2001 through 2010. 220 cases mad —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 12, 2000: LEWIS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Reserve (93 points, $60)

Here—s an outstanding California Cabernet from the excellent '97 vintage. A bold, ripe, rich and polished, from an exciting Oakville producer, with layers of earthy currant, spice, mineral, plum and toasty, spicy oak. A wonderfully delicious young wine. —James Laube

Apr. 07, 2000: ETUDE Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley (92 points, $50)

Winemaker Tony Soter has fashioned another outstanding Cabernet. The '96 Etude is a tight, crisp California Cabernet that strings together a tasty ensemble of spicy, cedary currant, dried cherry and anise, finishing with a seamless band of tannins. Needs —James Laube
