Jun. 30, 2003: WEINBACH Riesling Alsace Cuvée Ste.-Catherine 2001 (92 points, $40)

The wild side of Alsace. Loads of spice and floral top notes, with tropical fruit, stone and pastry accents beneath. Full-bodied yet graceful, it starts out off-dry, then the vivid acidity takes over. Needs time. Best from 2004 through 2012. 180 cases imp —Bruce Sanderson

A real mouthful of delicious Chardonnay, its range of flavors stretching from ripe pear, fig and citrus to pretty smoky oak, hazelnut and caramel. Finishes with a pure gush of rich earth and Chardonnay flavors, turning elegant and graceful. Drink now thro —James Laube
