Aug. 07, 1999: DOMINUS ESTATE Napanook Vineyard Napa Valley (92 points, $100)

Christian Moueix's California venture has now established a solid track record, and the latest vintage of Dominus is another outstanding wine. Bordeaux-like in style, ripe, polished, rich in flavor, with complex currant, earth, cherry and berry, plenty of

Aug. 04, 1999: CASTELLO BANFI Brunello di Montalcino Poggio all\'Oro Riserva 1993 (93 points, $125)

Big, chewy and delicious. Beautiful, multidimensional aromas of ripe berries, mushrooms and chestnuts. Full-bodied, very velvety, with a long, long, fruity finish. Best after 2002. 5,000 cases made.

Jul. 15, 1999: SAINTSBURY Chardonnay Carneros Reserve 1997 (93 points, $35)

A winner on all counts, this California Chardonnay shows enormous richness and concentration yet maintains a remarkable sense of harmony and finesse as it gently layers its hazelnut, fig, pear, spice, citrus and toasty oak flavors. Best from 2000 through

Jul. 14, 1999: J. FAIVELEY Gevrey-Chambertin Les Cazetiers (89 points, $50)

Only in Burgundy. Game, toasted bread, smoke and lots of cassis -- talk about an exotic Pinot -- medium-bodied and dark in color, with a chewy texture and lots of succulent, ripe fruit on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2000.
