$15 to $30

Apr. 18, 2005: VON OTHEGRAVEN Riesling Qualitätswein Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Ockfen Bockstein 2003 (90 points, $30)

Spicy, fresh and balanced, this exuberant dry white shows that the Mosel can also excel in this style in a hot year. Peach and citrus in spades, with a juicy texture and good length. Drink now through 2009. 205 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 16, 2005: WITHER HILLS Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2004 (90 points, $23)

Bright, ripe and generous with its lemony pear and quince flavors. Distinctive and lingering on the deftly balanced finish. Drink now. 2,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 15, 2005: WARWICK Estate Reserve Simonsberg-Stellenbosch 2002 (90 points, $30)

A taut, muscular style, with lots of cocoa, vanilla and toast covering the dark currant, black cherry and plum fruit. The focused finish shows nice acidity and brighter fruit, though, so let this develop with moderate cellaring. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot —James Molesworth

Apr. 14, 2005: ZILLIKEN Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Saarburger Rausch 2003 (89 points, $30)

Creamy and rich, with orange, vanilla and lime notes mingling in the juicy structure. Tails off a little on the finish, but the flavors are seductive. Should open up nicely over time. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 13, 2005: CARLEI Shiraz Heathcote Green Vineyards 2002 (91 points, $29)

Lively, refreshing and distinctive, with subtle herb notes weaving through bold currant, blueberry and a wee touch of floral character as the flavors persist. Stylish. Intense but not weighty. Drink now through 2012. 200 cases imported. —Harvey Steiman
