daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Mar. 01, 2005: CHÂTEAU D'AIGUILHE Côtes de Castillon 2002 (89 points, $20)

Intense aromas of black currant, basil, minerals and a hint of fresh licorice stick. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long minerally finish. Lacks a bit on the midpalate now. Give it time to even out. Best after 2007. 8,330 cases made. —James Suckling

Feb. 28, 2005: MILZ-LAURENTIUSHOF Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Piesporter Hofberger 2003 (90 points, $20)

Dense and packed with citrus notes, this kabinett has enough structure to keep it all focused and persistent, despite its opulent profile. Good grip on the finish, with a long aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 26, 2005: FIFE Redhead Red Mendocino 2001 (84 points, $15)

Plum, spice and mineral notes are tasty, with chewy tannins and a long, lingering finish, where a touch of beef and bacon come through. Syrah and Carignane. Drink now. 7,900 cases made. From California. —James Laube

Feb. 26, 2005: VON HÖVEL Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Oberemmeler Hütte 2003 (89 points, $25)

Fresh and vibrant, this reveals plenty of mineral notes along with peach and lime. Balanced, yet a little tight now, it has elegance and a long finish. Drink now through 2015. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 25, 2005: WILLI HAAG Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Brauneberger Juffer (AP 4) 2003 (89 points, $25)

This is full of mineral and spice notes matched to a firm, elegant profile. Dense and light on its feet at the same time, this has the intensity and balance to age gracefully. Long, creamy finish. Drink now through 2015. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
