SEAVEY Merlot Napa Valley 2002
92 points, $36

CHÂTEAU PIERRE-BISE Quarts de Chaume 2003

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
