daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Jan. 19, 2005: CASA LAPOSTOLLE Merlot Colchagua Valley Cuvée Alexandre 2002 (89 points, $19)

Nice mix of red and black fruits here, with ambitious chocolate and toast as well. Chunky texture and notes of dried herb and cocoa powder take over on the finish, which shows concentration but could use a touch more polish. Still, quite tasty. Drink now —James Molesworth

Jan. 18, 2005: JAKOBY-MATHY Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Kinheimer Rosenberg 2003 (90 points, $16)

Herb and mineral aromas and flavors hold sway in this elegant, lightweight Riesling. There's a lip-smacking quality here, though the acidity seems low, ending with a crisp, tactile sensation. Drink now through 2009. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 17, 2005: JOHANN HAART Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Piesporter Goldtröpfchen 2003 (90 points, $20)

This tastes like an orange creamsicle, with a nice combination of richness and acidity. It remains well-balanced, if on the soft side, with a lingering finish. Drink now through 2010. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 15, 2005: C. VON SCHUBERT Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Maximin Grünhäuser Abstberg 2003 (90 points, $25)

A mix of herb and tropical fruit notes with a hint of mineral gets support from a moderately firm structure in this easygoing white. It remains delicate and focused, if atypical in style. Drink now through 2010. 1,000 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 14, 2005: NINO NEGRI Valtellina Superiore Inferno Mazér 2001 (90 points, $18)

Beautiful aromas of crushed plums with hints of spices. Full-bodied, yet balanced and refined with silky tannins and a long finish. This is always excellent value for the quality. Best after 2006. 4,600 cases made. From Lombrady, Italy. —James Suckling
