JOSEPH PHELPS Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2002
92 points, $48
A rich, dense and deeply concentrated young Cabernet, with layers of currant, plum, spice, cedar and blueberry notes that are tightly focused and supported by firm, ripe tannins. Impressive also for its balance and amplitude, it should reward short- to me —James Laube

JO PITHON Coteaux du Layon Les 4 Villages 2002
92 points, $33
