daily wine picks


$15 to $30

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

Apr. 12, 2005: FORT WALLA WALLA Cabernet Sauvignon Walla Walla Valley 2002 (89 points, $30)

Warm, generous and lithe, with lovely blackberry, currant and sweet spice flavors that linger on the round, gentle finish. Big but not aggressive. Drink now through 2009. 365 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 11, 2005: GEOFF WEAVER Riesling Lenswood 2003 (89 points, $28)

Tangy, lean and focused, with spicy lemon and mineral flavors that persist onto the lively finish. Drink now through 2012. 300 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
