PRIDE Merlot Napa-Sonoma Counties 2002
93 points, $52
Aromas of cedar, ripe berry fruit and hints of toasty oak offer solid clues as to what comes across on the palate. Intense and well-balanced, the supple blackberry and black cherry flavors pick up a nice dose of creamy mocha and toasty oak on the finish. —James Laube

DOMAINE DES BAUMARD Savennières Trie Spéciale 2003
92 points, $35
Seems bone dry at first, with steely white peach, mineral and quince notes held in check by vibrant acidity. Long, bracing finish unwinds in the glass to show more depth, with hints of orange blossom, lanolin and fig. A backward wine that needs cellaring. —James Molesworth

92 points, $47

LES VINS DE VIENNE Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Otéliées 2003
93 points, $49
Densely structured and shrouded in cocoa and toast, this very concentrated wine has a massive core of blackberry, tar, game and mineral notes that will need cellaring to harmonize fully—but when it does ... Almost like a Northern Rhône in its focus and —James Molesworth

ROGER SABON & FILS Châteauneuf-du-Pape Réserve 2003
93 points, $50
This has all the ripe, nearly exotic plum, blackberry, briar and bacon aromas and flavors of the vintage, but without any of the hard edges. Seriously plush and fleshy through the finish, which shows floral hints as well. Gorgeous. Drink now through 2020. —James Molesworth
