daily wine picks


$15 to $30

Jan. 12, 2005: PROVISOR Syrah Dry Creek Valley 2002 (90 points, $30)

This wine offers a pure, rich display of ripe blackberry, boysenberry and plummy notes, that are offset by a dusty wild berry, violet and sage scent and supported by tight, firm, grainy tannins. Best from 2006 through 2012. 440 cases made. From California —James Laube

Jan. 11, 2005: JOHANNISHOF Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Johannisberger Klaus 2003 (90 points, $24)

Flavors of lemon curd, cream and mineral hightlight this medium weight, intense Riesling. It's lively and lingers on the finish, with a crispness around the gums. Drink now through 2015. 50 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 10, 2005: VON HÖVEL Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Oberemmeler Hütte 2003 (90 points, $20)

Is this 2003? Almost racy, here's an opulent Riesling with a fine, vibrant structure and intense flavors of lime, peach and mineral. Perhaps not the length of a great year like 2001, but very well done and expressive. Drink now through 2012. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 08, 2005: WILLI HAAG Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Brauneberger Juffer (AP 11) 2003 (90 points, $25)

Rose, slate and red berry aromas and flavors mark this exotic Riesling, whose structure is moderately firm. It picks up a tactile sensation on the finish, yet lingers pleasantly, with a licorice aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Jan. 07, 2005: CULLER Syrah Napa Valley 2002 (90 points, $30)

Dark-hued, with intense, concentrated beefy white pepper, wild berry, blackberry and cedary-tobacco-herbal scents that are tightly wound and well-focused, ending with a chewy core of tannins. Best from 2006 through 2012. 221 cases made. From California. —James Laube
