MARQUIS PHILIPS Shiraz McLaren Vale-Padthaway 9 2003
92 points, $40
Smooth and generous, laden with a range of sweet spices, including cassis and anise, with hints of caramel against ripe plum flavors on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 2,000 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman

ALAIN GRAILLOT St.-Joseph 2003
92 points, $40
Seems ultramodern at first, as vivid blueberry and boysenberry fruit rushes along ripe, sweet tannins before a more minerally tone makes an appearance, lending a sense of terroir. Lengthy, racy finish lets the minerality blossom in the glass. Drink —James Molesworth

PRIDE Merlot Napa-Sonoma Counties 2002
93 points, $52
Aromas of cedar, ripe berry fruit and hints of toasty oak offer solid clues as to what comes across on the palate. Intense and well-balanced, the supple blackberry and black cherry flavors pick up a nice dose of creamy mocha and toasty oak on the finish. —James Laube

DOMAINE DES BAUMARD Savennières Trie Spéciale 2003
92 points, $35
Seems bone dry at first, with steely white peach, mineral and quince notes held in check by vibrant acidity. Long, bracing finish unwinds in the glass to show more depth, with hints of orange blossom, lanolin and fig. A backward wine that needs cellaring. —James Molesworth
Sep. 16, 2005
LA BASTIDE ST.-DOMINIQUE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Secrets de Pignan Vieilles Vignes 2003
92 points, $47
Lovely perfume here, with raspberry and kirsch aromas and flavors leading the way for racy mineral, violet and graphite flavors. Long, racy finish shows fine purity and acidity for the vintage. Accessible now, but will benefit from time. Drink now through —James Molesworth
