LE VIEUX DONJON Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2003
93 points, $45
Hard as nails now, this is packed with ultraripe plum and blackberry fruit all supported by brawny, muscular tannins that romp through a licorice- and tar-filled finish. May be ferocious for some, but those who sock it away in the cellar will be rewarded. —James Molesworth

95 points, $79
Really silky for an '03, with gorgeous raspberry ganache and cassis fruit that glides atop grilled herb, mineral and tar flavors. Long, authoritative finish shows lots of grip and fruit. A powerful yet racy wine. Drink now through 2025. 1,000 cases made. —James Molesworth

DALLA VALLE Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2002
94 points, $100
A tremendous wine—rich, intense and powerful, yet exhibiting wonderful balance and finesse, with a tightly wound core of earthy currant, blackberry, mineral, lead pencil and cedary oak. Despite its considerable size and density, the flavors gush through —James Laube
