DOMAINE DE LA MORDORÉE Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Reine des Bois 2004
95 points, $135
A powerhouse for the vintage, with loads of blackberry and black currant fruit held at bay by tar, loamy tannins and thick layers of cocoa and coffee. Marvelously balanced despite its weight, with fruit and terroir coursing through the finish. Best —James Molesworth

ACHÁVAL-FERRER Finca Mirador Mendoza 2004
94 points, $112

Sep. 19, 2006
94 points, $145
Alluring, with beautiful notes of freshly crushed raspberry and blackberry layered with mocha, spice, graphite, incense and mineral notes. Long finish stays riveting thanks to superfine acidity. Malbec. Drink now through 2016. 263 cases made. —James Molesworth

93 points, $48
Racy, almost piercing, with graphite, violet, mineral and boysenberry notes rushing along fine tannins and acidity. Long finish, but on the tight side for now, so cellar. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2007 through 2014. —James Molesworth
