A notably rich, creamy, deftly balanced style, with layers of fig, melon, vanilla and citrus, turning elegant and complex on the finish. Drink now through 2008. 840 cases made. From California. —James Laube
Smooth and vibrant, with pretty blackberry, plum and gentle spice flavors, shaded with sweet oak as the finish lingers impressively. Drink now through 2009. 1,300 cases made. From Australia. —Harvey Steiman
Bright and lively with lovely lime, celery and mineral character on the nose and palate. Medium- to full-bodied, with a long finish. Like this a lot. Well done. This is always an underrated white. Drink now. From Bordeaux, France. —James Suckling
Attractive white with lemon and green apple character and medium body. Very lemony. Fresh and lively. Minerally and creamy. Not as rich as some past vintages but very good. Drink now. 1,950 cases made. From Veneto, Italy. —James Suckling
Very tasty. Lime, slate and peach notes ride a vibrant structure and its profile is delicate for an '03. Delicious now, this has the sleekness to develop over a long time. Drink now through 2020. 400 cases made. From Germany. —Bruce Sanderson
