FRANÇOIS VILLARD Condrieu Le Grand Vallon 2003
92 points, $50

QUINTA DO CRASTO Douro Reserva Old Vines 2003
92 points, $35
Rich red that's like biting into a German chocolate cake. There's a delicate, refined element with meat, mineral, dark plum and cassis. Long, luxuriant finish of chocolate, mocha spice. Best from 2006 through 2010. 4,500 cases made. —Kim Marcus

SEQUUM Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Four Soil Melange 2003
92 points, $55
A tremendous effort in a bold, opulent style, with layers of rich, extracted blackberry, currant, kirsch and savory, toasty oak flavors that are bold and potent yet in proportion to the wine. Ample tannins for short-term cellaring. Best from 2007 through —James Laube
Dec. 24, 2005
SYLVAIN CATHIARD Vosne-Romanée 2002
92 points, $60
A bright, focused red, evoking strawberry, cherry and spice aromas and flavors. It's very elegant, yet needs to resolve its firm tannins before all the elements integrate. Fine length, with a sweet fruit and spice aftertaste. Best from 2007 through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson
Dec. 23, 2005
PRODUTTORI DEL BARBARESCO Barbaresco Pora Riserva 2000
92 points, $47
Aromas of plum, cigar box and cedar follow through to full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a focused, fruity finish. All there. Juicy finish. Like this one. Best after 2007. 1,500 cases made. —James Suckling
