Brilliant. Rich, dense and exploding with red fruit, vanilla cream, peach, apple and mineral flavors, all displayed on a vivid, light-weight frame. This will benefit from time in the bottle. Best from 2003 through 2010.

Smoke and slate aromas burst forth in this ultrarefined, filigreed Mosel kabinett. Firm and focused, it's forward now, but give it time to integrate. Drink now through 2008. —Bruce Sanderson
Very appealing. Like a laser, this focuses its beam of apple and mineral across the palate, ending in a crisp manner, all on a lightweight structure. Drink now through 2005. 500 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
Rich, ripe and supple, with loads of concentrated plum, chocolate and dark cherry flavors. Well-structured, with notes of French roast and dark chocolate on the finish. Delicious red from the south of France. Drink now through 2005. 2,000 cases made. < —Kim Marcus
This Veneto red from one of the region's top producers shows beautiful aromas of minerals, berries and violets, with just the right amount of toasted oak. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins, but slightly austere on the finish. Give it a year of bot —James Suckling
