daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Apr. 29, 2005: DOMAINE DU CAILLOU Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2001 (92 points, $30)

Beautiful, pure plum and crème de cassis aromas lead the way for a beam of lovely fruit on the palate, followed by alluring vanilla bean, black tea, fig, mineral and tar notes. The long finish is carried by well-embedded acidity. Drink now through 2015. —James Molesworth

Apr. 28, 2005: KURT HAIN Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Piesporter Goldtröpfchen 2003 (92 points, $25)

Piquant. Despite low acidity, a brightness brings the tasty nectarine and vanilla custard flavors into relief. Fine length. Delicious now, but will improve with time. Drink now through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 27, 2005: JOHANN HAART Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Piesporter Goldtröpfchen 2003 (91 points, $22)

Rich, yet maintains elegance and vibrant acidity, which serves its orange cream, vanilla and mineral notes well--they stay focused through the long finish. Drink now through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 26, 2005: BALTHASAR RESS Riesling Qualitätswein Rheingau Rüdesheimer Berg Schlossberg Erstes Gewächs 2003 (89 points, $26)

Plump and round, with a soft structure and ample flesh framing its apricot- and orange-tinged flavors. Though concentrated, it falls off a little on the finish. Drink now through 2009. 180 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 25, 2005: JEAN-MAURICE RAFFAULT Chinon Clos des Capucins 2002 (89 points, $26)

Lovely black cherry, brier, black olive, iron and toast flavors, with a ripe, muscular finish. Balanced and focused. Very solid. Drink now through 2006. —James Molesworth
