$15 to $30

Feb. 27, 2003: CHATEAU SOUVERAIN Syrah Alexander Valley 2000 (87 points, $20)

Intense, with firm tannins wrapped around spicy blackberry and boysenberry fruit, shaded by spicy, cedary oak. Sufficiently tannic for cellaring. Best from 2004 through 2009. 2,029 cases made. —James Laube

Feb. 26, 2003: GRANS-FASSIAN Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Trittenheimer 2001 (90 points, $17)

Terrific kabinett. Fine aromas and flavors of lime, vanilla pastry and minerals penetrate the creamy texture. It's all balanced by vibrant acidity, ending in a long cascade of lime and stone. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

Very dry in style for kabinett, with more spice and slate notes than fruit. There's a creamy texture overlying a racy structure; this needs some time to open up and strut its stuff. Drink now through 2012. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 22, 2003: ZACA MESA Syrah Santa Ynez Valley 2000 (88 points, $20)

Intense black cherry, beef, spice and herb tones have firm, stylish tannins and bracing acidity. Concentration lingers, along with toasty oak, in a ripe, flavorful finish. Drink now through 2008. 5,446 cases made. —James Laube

Feb. 21, 2003: DR. LOOSEN Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Bernkasteler Lay 2001 (92 points, $17)

Germany's '01 Rieslings offer terrific quality and value, as this Mosel Kabinett shows. Brilliant and snappy, here's a mouthful of tangy mandarin orange, lime and mineral against a transparent backdrop, all supported by vibrant acidity. With wonderful har —Bruce Sanderson
