Impressive aromas of ripe fruit with hints of spices. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a solid core of fruit and ripe tannins. Very impressive indeed. On the same level as 2000. Best after 2007. —James Suckling
Terrific auslese. Pure, vibrant and elegant, with a panoply of peach, lime and slate aromas and flavors matched to a seamless frame. Lovely aftertaste of baked apple and vanilla. Drink now through 2025. —Bruce Sanderson
Dense and tightly wound, offering toast, peach, citrus and mineral flavors matched to a lively structure and supple texture. This smolders under the surface with tension and energy. Terrific length. Best from 2006 through 2012. 425 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson
Aromas of sweet plums and spices follow through to a full-bodied palate, with firm tannins and a solid core of fruit. This is very tightly knit and needs to unravel with bottle age. Turns big and chewy with air. This has excellent potential. Best after 20 —James Suckling
A terrific '02 white, silky, concentrated, vibrant and dynamic. It's full-bodied yet well-toned, unleashing its peach, floral, hazelnut and tobacco notes in layers. Firmly structured and beautifully integrated with the oak, it ends with a long butterscotc —Bruce Sanderson
