Very ripe and exotic, evoking cantaloupe, mango and licorice notes on a lush frame. It offers very good acidity, with a lovely finish. Well done. Drink now through 2012. 525 cases made. From Germany. —James Molesworth
Very attractive flavors of peach, apricot and lemon mark this moderately structured Riesling. Not the clarity and harmony of the best in this category, but may just need time to settle down. Drink now through 2015. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
Rich and fleshy, there's a bright structure in this '03 Riesling supporting the peach and lime notes. There's an airy texture and moderate length on the finish. Drink now through 2012. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
Vibrant and intense, serving up a bright beam of passion fruit, grapefruit, grass and tangy nectarine flavors that dance with lemon and lime peel notes on a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2006. 400 cases made. From California. —James Laube
There's a tad more zip here than usual for 2003, which helps to focus the slate, peach and citrus notes. Good persistence, ending in an almost salty finish. Drink now through 2012. 1,200 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
