JOSEPH PHELPS Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Backus 2002
92 points, $175
Enticing aromas of currant, mocha and stone carry over to the palate, giving it a decidedly minerally edge. But those pebbly notes give it a unique flavor profile and it's supported by firm, chewy tannins. Best to decant now. Best from 2007 through 2012. —James Laube

HUGEL Riesling Alsace Hommage à Jean Hugel 1998
92 points, $56
At its peak, this boasts apricot, nectarine and citrus flavors, an opulent texture, yet good underlying acidity that refreshes the finish and keeps pumping the flavors through the long, mineral-tinged aftertaste. Drink now through 2010. 450 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

WEINBACH Gewürztraminer Alsace Grand Cru Furstentum Vendanges Tardives 2002
93 points, $99
Concentrated and intense, with a very clean expression of botrytis lending spice notes to the grapefruit and litchi flavors. Fine balance, with a touch of bitterness on the finish. Fine length. Drink now through 2012. 102 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
