More than $30

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

Apr. 13, 2005: VON HÖVEL Riesling Eiswein Long Gold Cap Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Oberemmeler Hütte 2003 (93 points, $75)

The immediate impression is ripe, concentrated peach, spice and mineral flavors. Then the lively structure emerges, cleansing the palate and providing a counterpoint for the sweetness, with a vanilla pastry aftertaste. Drink now through 2020. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 12, 2005: ULITHORNE Shiraz McLaren Vale Frux Frugis 2001 (93 points, $55)

Ripe, lively and focused. A plump mouthful of blueberry, plum, vanilla and spice flavors that persist impressively on the open-textured finish. Drink now through 2015. 1,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman

Apr. 11, 2005: ROBERT WEIL Riesling Spätlese Rheingau Kiedrich Gräfenberg 2003 (93 points, $60)

A delicious spätlese, bursting with apricot, orange and vanilla notes, all backed by good acidity. Needs a little time to settle down, but shows elegance, concentration and good length. Best from 2006 through 2015. —Bruce Sanderson

Apr. 09, 2005: LES CAILLOUX Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Centenaire 2001 (93 points, $230)

Old-time, rustic style, with lots of dark, brawny licorice root, sweet earth, spice, baked plum and dark currant flavors. Rich and chewy, this gains muscle and flesh as it sits in the glass. Impressive. Drink now through 2015. —James Molesworth
