Cyclists: Road Bike Recommendations?

I've been slowly transitioning my passion from mountain biking to road biking on a mountain bike, and now I'm planning to get a road bike.

I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations based upon my criteria below:

I like to bike long distances 40-100 miles per ride.
I like to climb relatively steep grades 6-10 degrees.
I love to ride really fast on both flat and slight in/declines.

The bike:
Must be full carbon or at least carbon tubes.
Preferably should be a race bike, not a leisure bike.
Should have be least Ultegra component group.
Compact gears would be nice, but are not requisite.

Price wise, I'm looking at $2000-$2600 out the door, including clipless pedals.

Any ideas...recommendations?

So far, I'm looking at:
Specialized Tarmac
Trek Madone
Update: BTW, I am looking for specific Make and Model recommendations. Such as Trek Madone 5.2SL, for instance.

Also, if it matters for your recommendations, I am 6'2.5", 188lbs, 33.5" inseam.
Update 2: Sorry...price wise, MSRP would be in range of $2400-$3000. A lot of the retail pricing is significantly lower than the MSRPs, but for argument's sake, let's look at MSRP.
