daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Apr. 21, 2005: SEVEN HILLS Merlot Columbia Valley Klipsun Vineyard 2002 (89 points, $30)

Firm and chewy, with candied blackberry and currant flavors, picking up earthy notes on the finish. Best from 2006 through 2012. 250 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 20, 2005: ÖKONOMIERAT REBHOLZ Riesling Qualitätswein Trocken Pfalz Kastanienbusch 2003 (89 points, $30)

Ripe and creamy, with candied apple, but this lacks oomph and flavor intensity midpalate. Drink now. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 19, 2005: OWEN SULLIVAN R3 Columbia Valley 2002 (92 points, $30)

Ripe, rich, almost flamboyant with its currant, blueberry, plum and exotic spice aromas and flavors sashaying through the thin veils of fine tannins. A spectacular mouthful that should only gain with cellaring. Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlo —Harvey Steiman

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
