ACHÁVAL-FERRER Malbec Mendoza Finca Mirador 2003
94 points, $85
This is a tower of raspberry and blackberry ganache, supported by riveting acidity. Piercing floral, graphite and mineral notes race along as well, extending the finish to a mouthwatering crescendo. A beautiful expression of fruit and terroir. Need —James Molesworth

TAUPENOT-MERME Mazoyères-Chambertin 2003
92 points, $130
Lovely fruit here, showing black cherry, plum, earth and licorice notes, supported by a firm spine of tannins. Less opulent than its peers, with a vibrant structure and dense texture, this will be a struggle between the tannins and fruit in the end. Best —Bruce Sanderson

DOMAINE ST.-PRÉFERT Châteauneuf-du-Pape Auguste Favier Réserve 2003
92 points, $52
Perfumy style, with elegant red and black cherry, raspberry and spice flavors shaded by mineral, floral and toast hints. Long, supple finish is atypical for '03. Still, don't be fooled-there's stuffing here for cellaring too. Drink now through 2015. Taste —James Molesworth

SEAVEY Merlot Napa Valley 2002
92 points, $36
Wonderful structure, with firm, ripe tannins wrapped around a generous, concentrated core of vibrant currant, cola, wild berry and spicy anise notes that are deep and concentrated, with a long, intense, focused finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 500 cas —James Laube

CHÂTEAU PIERRE-BISE Quarts de Chaume 2003
92 points, $32/500ml
This combines power and grace, with candied orange and ginger, maple and brown butter notes riding atop a vibrant minerally spine. Then everything cascades together on the lengthy finish. Drink now through 2013. —James Molesworth
