ROGER SABON & FILS Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve 2003
93 points, $50
This has all the ripe, nearly exotic plum, blackberry, briar and bacon aromas and flavors of the vintage, but without any of the hard edges. Seriously plush and fleshy through the finish, which shows floral hints as well. Gorgeous. Drink now through 2020. —James Molesworth

PAUL HOBBS Merlot Napa Valley Michael Black Vineyard 2002
93 points, $75
An awesome Merlot. Ripe, rich, generous style, with layers of fleshy currant, wild berry and blackberry fruit, shaded by cedary oak, sage and subtle herbal notes. The flavors pick up momentum and fan out on the finish, revealing extra dimensions of flavor —James Laube
Sep. 12, 2005
CLOS MOGADOR Priorat Manyetes 2001
93 points, $90
This massive red shows a thick texture and powerful tannins that nearly mask intense flavors of black currant, espresso and anise. But after the concentration and the alcohol, the finish echoes with sweet fruit and spice. Will the fruit outlast the tannin —Thomas Matthews
Sep. 10, 2005
ALAIN GRAILLOT Crozes-Hermitage La Guiraude 2003
93 points, $53
Nearly screams New World on the nose, with a torrent of exotic blueberry and blackberry fruit, but a laser of minerality, along with tobacco and tar, define it in the end. Packed with fruit and ripe structure on the superlong finish, and without any hard —James Molesworth
Sep. 09, 2005
DOMAINE DES BAUMARD Coteaux du Layon Clos Ste.-Catherine 2003
93 points, $45
Like biting into a fresh pear, this has pure, clean cut aromas and flavors, with mango, quince, dried pineapple and fig followed by alluring mineral and floral notes on the finish. Long and sweet, but refined and graceful. Drink now through 2015. 400 case —James Molesworth
