Beautiful nose of plums, violets and vanilla, with a silky palate of plum, black fig, vanilla and mineral notes that run through a lush and lengthy finish. Restrained in style, but lovely balance and deceptively concentrated. Drink now through 2007. 900 c —James Molesworth
A big Mosel spätlese, rich and creamy, with lime and slate notes holding court before the vibarnt acidity kicks in. Pure in flavor and lingering on the finish. Drink now through 2016. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
Sleek and exotic, offering mango, passion fruit and a hint of citrus, all balanced by moderate acidity and ending with a salty, mineral note. Drink now through 2010. 450 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
A mineral character pervades this apricot- and orange-flavored white. It's concentrated and intense, with a crisp, bright sensation on the finish. More delicate and gossamer than many '03s. Drink now through 2012. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
Dense and creamy, this offers peach, vanilla custard and mineral aromas and flavors matched to a firm structure. It gets a little pinched on the finish, with a lingering aftertaste. Best from 2006 through 2015. 400 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
