$15 to $30

Feb. 14, 2005: ST.-URBANS-HOF Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Ockfener Bockstein 2003 (90 points, $19)

Pungent and intense, with a lightweight, gossamer profile, this is quintessential Mosel, albeit in a hot vintage. It borders on licorice flavor, with slate and citrus accents. Long finish. Drink now through 2015. 600 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 12, 2005: LANGWERTH VON SIMMERN Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Hattenheimer Wisselbrunnen 2003 (90 points, $29)

Rich and silky, with a plump profile and moderate acidity framing the peach, apricot and spice flavors. It fades away a little on the finish today, but shows fine purity and balance. Drink now through 2018. 800 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 11, 2005: CORINO Barbera d'Alba Pozzo 2001 (90 points, $30)

Intense, with loads of black fruit and oaky character. Full-bodied, with fine, compact tannins and a long finish. Refined and delicious. I always love this Barbera. Best after 2005. 500 cases made. From Piedmont, Italy. —James Suckling

Feb. 10, 2005: REINHOLD HAART Riesling Kabinett Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Piesporter 2003 (90 points, $20)

A big, rich kabinett, this is packed with floral, cream, vanilla and apricot notes, all displayed on an open, yet dense profile. More like a big spätlese or auslese, but delicious and lingering, with a citrus aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. From Germ —Bruce Sanderson

Feb. 09, 2005: FRANZ KÜNSTLER Riesling Kabinett Rheingau Hochheimer Reichestal 2003 (90 points, $20)

A beauty. Ripe and fleshy, yet harmonious and dense, this Riesling evokes floral, peach and nectarine notes on a vibrant structure. Fine length and mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2010. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
