HILL CLIMBER Syrah Napa Valley Pilgrimage 2002
91 points, $40

LADERA Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Lone Canyon Vineyard 2001

Scents of new leather, ripe currant and plum lead to a similar array of flavors. Well-structured, with a firm core of edgy tannins and lively acidity. Most impressive, though, is the long, rich, intense flavor, with a nice minerally edge. Best from 2006 t —James Laube

91 points, $85
Performs Condrieu's unique trick—delivers lots of showy floral, peach, melon, mango and fig notes along with a long, creamy, smoky finish that manages to avoid being blowsy. Beautiful. Drink now. 375 cases made. From the Rhône, France. —James Molesworth

Smooth, rich and fleshy, this is a notably complex and concentrated youngster, with a tasty core of ripe currant, black cherry, cedar, olive and sage notes that are well-focused, ending with a complex aftertaste. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Verdot, Caberne —James Laube
