Apr. 19, 2005: ROBERT WEIL Riesling Auslese Rheingau Kiedrich Gräfenberg 2003 (96 points, $60/375ml)

A superfine texture and pure flavors of apricot, orange and honey mark this silky auslese. Beautifully balanced and full of finesse, this has the structure and concentration to age for decades. Terrific length. Drink now through 2030. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 18, 2005: MILZ-LAURENTIUSHOF Riesling Auslese Gold Cap Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Trittenheimer Leiterchen 2003 (93 points, $40)

Flamboyant, bursting with apricot, honey and mineral notes on a concentrated yet well-balanced frame. Enough acidity to offset the fruit intensity. Drink now through 2020. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 16, 2005: WITTMANN Riesling Auslese Rheinhessen Westhofener Morstein S 2003 (93 points, $75/500ml)

Passion fruit and pineapple galore in this opulent, almost racy '03 auslese. Has a very fine structure for the vintage and what tastes like a slight edge of botrytis to the flavors. Drink now through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 15, 2005: ROBERT YOUNG Chardonnay Alexander Valley 2002 (92 points, $37)

Rich and creamy, with tiers of buttery pear, hazelnut, marshmallow, anise and smoke, it shows off the ripeness of the fruit and pretty oak. Drink now through 2008. 1,240 cases made. —James Laube

Apr. 14, 2005: CLARENDON HILLS Syrah Clarendon Brookman 2003 (92 points, $115)

Firm, with racy blackberry, spice and something like lime lingering in the background, finishing with refinement. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
