PAUL JABOULET AÎNÉ Crozes-Hermitage Domaine de Thalabert 2003
90 points, $34
Pure and driven, with a racy core of black currant and boysenberry fruit atop a vivid, minerally underpinning. Lengthy, with fruit, garrigue and iron notes running through the finish. Drink now through 2015. 7,800 cases made. —James Molesworth

ALEX GAMBAL Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes 2003
90 points, $45
Sweet red berry and cherry aromas and flavors mark this intense red. It has succulence, but also power and a wild, earthy tobacco note. Solid tannins offer most of the structure and the finish lingers. Drink now through 2012. 100 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

SWITCHBACK RIDGE Petite Sirah Napa Valley Peterson Family Vineyard 2003
91 points, $52
Aromas of baked blackberry pie, espresso and wild berry are dense and concentrated, with the requisite tannic muscle you expect from Petite. Yet it is graceful, at times syrupy and at the end, delicious. Decant. Best from 2007 through 2012. 250 cases made —James Laube

CIABOT BERTON Barolo Roggeri 2001

An opulent wine for the vintage with blackberry, plum and light coffee aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, with juicy fruit and a chewy tannin structure. Long finish. Best after 2008. 500 cases made. —James Suckling
Jan. 11, 2006
SANCTUM Shiraz Western Cape 2003
91 points, $65
Very stylish, with Kenyan coffee bean and bittersweet cocoa notes framing ripe blackberry and cassis fruit. Tangy mineral and white pepper hints peek in on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2007. 65 cases imported. —James Molesworth
