Apr. 25, 2005: GEORG BREUER Riesling Auslese Gold Cap Rheingau Rauenthal Nonnenberg 2003 (94 points, $80/375ml)

Superb. Botrytis stamps its mark, with honey and spice gracing apricot, nectarine and orange flavors. Opulent yet graceful, intense yet caressing as it unfolds on the palate, with a long, long finish. Best from 2008 through 2030. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 23, 2005: FRANZ KÜNSTLER Riesling Auslese Gold Cap Rheingau Hochheimer Hölle 2003 (94 points, $75)

Serious. Thick, intense and powerful, wrapping its apricot, passion fruit and citrus notes in a velvety texture, all offset by a vivid structure. Great length. Set for a long life. Best from 2008 through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 22, 2005: CLARENDON HILLS Grenache Clarendon Hickinbotham 2003 (92 points, $73)

Ripe and luscious, beautifully balanced to keep it on its toes, dancing delicately through a long finish, offering plum, cherry and red peppercorn flavors that don't quit. Drink now through 2010. 800 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 21, 2005: BERT SIMON (HERRENBERG) Riesling Auslese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Serrig Herrenberg 2003 (95 points, $39)

Very exotic, showing floral, pear and apple aromas and flavors and fine concentration allied to a lightweight frame. Needs a little time to really sing, but delicious. Drink now through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 20, 2005: CLARENDON HILLS Syrah Clarendon Piggott Range 2003 (92 points, $175)

Firm, explosive in flavor, with a big burst of tangy blackberry, plum and licorice flavor wrapped in a tight package, with spicy, dusky oak showing, all persisting impressively on a racy finish. Needs time to settle in. Best after 2008. 600 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
