CHÂTEAU RAYAS Syrah Côtes du Rhône Château de Fonsalette Réservé 2003
90 points, $66
Alluring dark plum, cocoa, tobacco, lavender and mineral notes run through this focused red, with tightly grained tannins carrying the rich finish. There's another blast of fruit and game at the very end, thanks to ripe acidity. Drink now through 2015. 25 —James Molesworth

DOMAINE DU PÉGAÜ Châteauneuf-du-Pape White Cuvée Réservée 2005
90 points, $40
Bright, fresh, almost lacy in texture, with mineral and white peach flavors running through a crisp, clean finish. Demure at first, but the finish really opens up and pulls you back for more. Drink now through 2007. 200 cases made. —James Molesworth

FERRARI-CARANO Chardonnay Russian River Valley Fiorella 2004
90 points, $50
Bold, ripe and generous, rich with spicy green apple, cream, melon and a hint of hazelnut. Very complete, complex and concentrated, it can stand short-term cellaring. Acidity keeps the flavors lively and refreshing. Drink now through 2009. 672 cases made. —James Laube
Jun. 22, 2006
SIDURI Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Amber Ridge Vineyard 2004
91 points, $52
A pleasantly earthy style, with mineral, sage, wild berry and dusty raspberry fruit that's well-balanced and supported by firm tannins, ending with a complex berry and mineral aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. 189 cases made. —James Laube
Jun. 21, 2006
PATZ & HALL Pinot Noir Mendocino Alder Springs Vineyard 2004
91 points, $50
Sour cherry, earth, mineral and dusty cedar aromas are complex and the tannins are firm and tight. At this point, the tannins hold the upper edge, but short-term cellaring or decanting should do the trick. Drink now through 2010. 531 cases made. —Kim Marcus
