A rich, complex style, with excellent depth to the mix of ripe pear, fig and spice notes. Pretty toasty oak is also evident, yet for all the richness this is quite elegant. Drink now through 2009. 15,500 cases made. —James Laube

Shows beautiful aromas of crushed raspberry, cherry, vanilla and Indian spices. Full-bodied, with ultrasilky tannins and a long, long finish. Fantastic. This is a relatively new producer. Best after 2010. 1,000 cases imported. —James Suckling

NEWTON Merlot Napa Valley Unfiltered 2002
90 points, $55
Intense, focused and complex, with excellent structure and pure cassis and black cherry-laced fruit that turns fleshy midpalate before the tannins firm up on the finish. The best Merlot from this producer in a while. Drink now through 2011. 7,000 cases ma —James Laube
